INTRODUCTION 



To you, the new student, a hearty welcome is extended from the 
Sophomores and the Faculty. The "A" Book is your guide. It has been 
made small for your convenience; so carry it around .vith you. It is 
hoped that this little book will give you the information you want con- 
cerning activities, rules, regulations and traditions of Armstrong 
College. 

You who receive this book are among the select few whc are able 
to begin a college career. Your college life is a continuation of your 
previous life, but under new conditions. You have the opportunity to ex- 
plore new fields of human endeavor and to associate with new groups of 
your fellow men and women. Do not waste that opportunity in idleness and 
in good intentions which you neglect to pursue. 

If you give generously of your time and energy to both your academic 
and your social activities at Armstrong, you will receive a rich return of 
knowledge and friendship. If you do not give much of yourself, chances are 
you will not receive much. 

You have our every wish for the greatest possible enrichment of 
your life while you are an Armstrong Student.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 



New students should find the 1949-50 edition of the "A" Book 
an invaluable source of information about life at Armstrong College. 
The book has been prepared to help you become acquainted with 
Armstrong and its traditions. 

This fall Armstrong begins its fifteenth year of operation. 
During its history more than 700 graduates have gone forth from its 
halls to senior colleges or directly into business and professional 
life. By the leadership and scholarship they have shown, graduates 
have proved that these qualities are Armstrong traditions. The de- 
mocratic spirit allows each student full opportunity for participation 
in college affairs. The high scholastic standard compels every stu- 
dent to keep on his toes mentally. As a city college supported by the 
taxpayers of Savannah, Armstrong has always taken part in local ac- 
tivities and strives to serve the whole community. 

All students are expected to adopt Armstrong's high standards 
of scholarship and personal conduct as their own and to cooperate 
willingly in maintaining them, for few rules and regulations will be 
found in this book. Armstrong's reputation is in the hands of its 
students.

ALMA MATER 



Words by Margaret Spencer Lubs 
and Doris Falk, Class of 19 3 9 



Alma Mater, through the ages, 
Singing thy undying fame, 
Will thy sons and daughters cherish 
And defend thy golden name. 
To each heart thy noble story 
And thy calm and stately grace 
Herald thine immortal glory. 
Armstrong, hail, all hail to thee! 

Alma Mater, those before us 
Lift thine honor great and strong; 
We who follow take their banner, 
Raise it with a fighting-song. 
Consecrated is thy teaching, 
Sacred is thy marble height, 
Glorious thy spirit reaching 
Ever upward to the light. 



PEP SONG 



Words and Music by Claude Wilson, Class 
of 1940 



Watch out, foes, 'cause we're on our way, 

Cheering Armstrong onward today.' 

Win or lose, good sports we will be, 

Gaining glory for dear old A. J. C! 

So hats off, all, in reverence to her, 

Give three cheers, hooray.' (Rah) Rahf Rah!) 

See her banners flying above her. . . 

We can't express it, but oh! gee! how we 

love her; 
So fight, fight is our song. . . 
Onward, old Armstrong.'

ARMSTRONG LEADERSHIP SOCIETY 

High scholastic attainment among Armstrong students is recognized 
publicly through the Dean's List of scholastic attainment and through gradu- 
ation with honor. 

The quality of leadership is encouraged and rewarded wherever one 
is. Leadership in student activities at Armstrong College is recognized 
by the Armstrong Leadership Society, Alpha Lambda Sigma. The symbol 
of such recognition is an award of a silver "A". The requirements for 
membership in Alpha Lambda Sigma are met when a student receives one 
major and two minor honors distributed in three different fields of activity 
and has a total of twenty points. Recipients of the silver "A" awardmust 
also have an academic average of at least a "C". 

Points contributing toward the award, described below, must be re-

HOMECOMING 



Each year just before Christmas all students who have attended 
Armstrong are welcomed back for a visit. This occasion .is called 
Homecoming and the program for the day for several years past has 
consisted of a parade in the afternoon, a reception in the Armstrong 
Building, and a basketball game in the early evening followed by a dance. 
The parade has consisted of floats prepared by the various student clubs, 
the most outstanding receiving a silver trophy on which is engraved the 
name of the sponsoring organization. The reception in the Armstrong 
Building lobby has as one of its outstanding features a receiving line of 
members of the College Commission, administration, faculty, alumni 
officers and members of the Homecoming Committee. Membership in 
the Homecoming Committee is open to all who woi'ld like to participate 



and carries two minor points toward the silver "A" award. Students 
currently enrolled in the College are urged to attend the Homecoming 
reception so as to meet the alumni. The basketball game which hegijis 
about-ff o"cTdl:fe is usually one of the biggest games of the year. At the 
dance fallowing the basketball game, the Freshman Class presents the 
coronation of the Freshman King and Queen and their court. It is thus 
the big event for Armstrong Students of the Christmas Holiday season. 

OPEN HOUSE 



Each year in April the faculty and students of Armstrong invite 
the general public to come in to see what is being done at Armstrong. 
Each department of the College organizes a student committee to pre- 
pare a display of the work being done by that department. Parents and 
friends of Armstrong students and of high school students are cordially 
invited to pay us a visit during open house. There is a student and a 
faculty general Open House committee, the purpose of which is to co- 
ordinate what is one of the most important enterprises conducted by the 
College. 

DANCES 



All dances sponsored by the College for the student body are or- 
ganized by the Dance Committee. The Dance Committee is composed 
of a representative of each officially recognized student organization 
and of other students who are interested in this particular activity. The 
following dances are planned annually and paid for by an appropriation 
from the Student Activity Fund: 

Halloween Dance October 28 

Valentine Dance February 10 

The Geechee Staff presents the results of its choice 
of Armstrong beauties at the Valentine Dance. 

May Dance May 5 

The Homecoming Dance on,D«cember 19th is planned by the Dance 
Committee but paid for by the College. The Coronation of Freshman 
King and Queen is an outstanding feature of this dance. 

Generally, the Sophomores give a dance for the Freshman at the 
beginning of the school year and the Freshmen give a graduation dance 
for the Sophomores the night of Graduation. 

Informal dances in addition to those named above are arranged from 
time to time. Any society wishing to give a dance must obtain permission 
In writing from the Dance Committee and must abide by the regulations made 
by the committee. 



SPORTS 

Armstrong seeks to promote sportsmanship and good health through 
a program of intramural and inter-collegiate sports. The inter-collegiate 
sports in which Armstrong teams usually participate are basketball, tennis, 
golf and swimming. Intramural sports are organized through the nine intra- 
mural clubs, the managers of which constitute the two Intramural Boards, 
the Men's Intramural Board and the Women's Intramural Board. These 
organizations are described under the heading "Clubs". 

PUBLICATIONS 

The three publications of Armstrong College are the Inkwell, a news- 
paper, the Mercury, a quarterly magazine and the Geechee, the college an- 
nual. 

These three publications are distributed to all students free of charge 
and are financed by the Student Activity Fee, which is paid at the beginning 
of each quarter. 

An organization meeting will be called by the Editor-in-Chief of each 
publication during the first week of the school year. At this time all students 
interested in positions on the staffs are invited to be present to discuss poli- 
cies and plans for the year and to receive first assignments. 

The Inkwell will be distributed during the fall, winter, and spring 
quarters. The Mercury will be distributed at the end of each quarter. The 
Geechee will be distributed at the end of the spring quarter. 

PUBLICATIONS ELECTIONS 

Positions of Editor-in-Chief, Managing Editor and Business Manager 
of each publication will be chosenby elections to be held during the last month 
of the Spring Quarter. To be eligible a student must have served on either of 
the staffs during his or her Freshman year, and must have had some former 
experience in journalism. The student must also maintain a "C" average. 

The above requirements are considered by the Publications Board In 
making nominations for the offices. The Board is composed of the Editor-

PUBLICATIONS KEYS 



During the Spring Quarter, the Publications Board will meet to 
nominate and elect the recipients of Keys given as awards for outstanding 
work on the three College Publications. Each publication will award three 
Keys. The Board is charged with selection of a suitable Key. 



THE SAVANNAH PLAYHOUSE 



The Savannah Playhouse of Armstrong College is an example of a 
community project sponsored and directed by the college. Local citizens 
as well as students may gain here actual experience in acting, designing, 
construction, lighting, make-up and all the theater skills that make a good 
production. 

Reactivated in 1947 after a five-year suspension of activity, the 
Playhouse quickly established its reputation as one of the leading non- 
professional theaters in the South with a calendar of five dramatic pro- 
ductions playing a total of 28 performances. 

Major productions during the last two seasons include MY SISTER 
EILEEN, WINTERSET, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ERNEST, LIFE 
WITH FATHER, GREEN GROW THE LILACS, ANGEL STREET, and THE 
TAMING OF THE SHREW. 

Students may work with the Playhouse as an extra-curricular activity 
or may earn college credit by taking the courses listed under Drama. Try- 
outs for roles in major productions are open to the public as well as students. 

During the month of May the Playhouse inaugurated the first Drama 
Festival with a repertoire of three plays, two of which were shown each 
day for an entire week. This festival received nation-wide recognition. 



BETA LAMBDA 

Beta Lambda is the Armstrong branch of the national Home Economics 
sorority. The purpose of this organization is to bring together women stu - 
dents who are interested in professional Home Economics and in homemaking 
and its members have many opportunities during the year to participate in 
receptions, dances and national and state meetings. 

DRAMA CLUB 

The Drama Club is organized for the purpose of promoting interest in 
the Savannah Playhouse. This Club helps develop theatrical ability through 
the reading and actual performance of plays All members of the Drama 
Club assist in Playhouse productions, and thus add greatly to their experi- 
ence. Under the direction of Mr. Carlson Thomas, faculty advisor, the Club 
has taken a very vital part in the Savannah Playhouse. 

DEBATE FORUM 

The Debate Forum provides an opportunity for students who want to 
train themselves in logical thinking and public speaking. Armstrong debate 
teams meet other colleges here in Savannah and make two or three trips a 
year to challenge such neighboring institutions as Emory University, Citadel, 
University of Georgia and the University of Florida. 

ARMSTRONG ENGINEERING SOCIETY 

The Armstrong Engineering Society, composed of students interested 
in engineering, gives the member a closer contact with the practical field 
of engineering through lectures given by prominent practicing engineers, 
by field trips to various industries and engineering projects, and through 
movies on subjects pertaining to engineering. 

FRENCH CLUB 

The French Club is an organization which is interested in furthering 
relations with European nations, as well as offering conversational oppor- 
tunities to the student. Their meetings are called by the President monthly. 

This Club attempts to aid the European situation by means of food 
and clothing drives, along with its other activities. 

GLEE CLUB 

The dual purposes of the Glee Club are the fulfillment of the desires 
of those students who enjoy singing choral arrangements, and the furnish- 
ings of superior vocal music for the College. 



INTRAMURAL SPORT CLUBS 

MEN'S INTRAMURAL BOARD 

The Men's Intramural Board, with the aid of Mr. Carmen Torrie, 
Athletic Director, plans the sports program for the men in the College. 
This board is composed of one member from each of the five boys' teams 
which are: the Scholars, the Gators, the Terrapins, the Eager Beavers, 
and the Loafers. The three most outstanding sports in the athletic pro- 
gram this year were two-handed touch football, basketball, and softball. 
It is the aim of the Board to encourage greater participation in sports at 
Armstrong. 

WOMEN'S INTRAMURAL BOARD 

The Women's Intramural Board seeks to enlist all girls in the ath- 
letic program of the College. It is organized similarly to the men's board 
and is composed of the team coptains from each of the four teams: the 
Co-eds, the Glamazons, the Sassy-Strutters, and the Slick Chicks. These 
teams compete in ping-pong, basketball, softball, swimming, tennis, and 
other sports during the year. 

MUSIC CLUB 

The aim of the Music Club is to develop a greater appreciation of 
fine music, and to provide the Club members with weekly evening of 
pleasant enjoyment. These informal Club meetings are held at the home 
of the various members. 

NEWMAN CLUB 

The Newman Club, organized in 1949, has as its purpose the bringing 
together of students interested in the life and works of Cardinal Newman 
and Catholic philosophy in general. Membership is open to all students. 

PSYCHOLOGY AND PHILOSOPHY SEMINAR 

The Psychology and Philosophy Seminar meets twice a month for 
the purpose of analyzing and discussing books of permanent value and 
of great interest in the fields of philosophy and psychology.

It was organized in 1948 to provide fun and relaxation for students who 
like to ride. Members meet every Saturday morning for weekly rides 
at the Sa-Hi Riding Academy, and once every month a Moonlight Ride 
or a Breakfast Ride is given.

developments in the various fields. Its activities range from educational 
talks by prominent teachers and leaders to motion pictures and scientific 
expeditions. 

SORORITIES

SOPHOMORE CLASS 

As soon as possible after the beginning of the Fall Quarter the Dean 
of Students will call a meeting of the Sophomore Class. At this meeting 
class officers will be nominated. Nominations are made from the floor 
for the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. 
The number of nominations is determined by the will of the class. These 
nominations are recorded and voted on by secret ballot. The four candi- 
dates receiving the largest number of votes will discharge their duties 
for the Fall, Winter and Spring Quarters and will preside over the class 
meetings. 

If, for any reason, the President of the class must leave, the Vice- 
President assumes the duties of President. The candidate who received 
the second highest number of votes (for Vice-President) during class 
elections will occupy the office of Vice-President. If either the offices 
of the Secretary or Treasurer of the class becomes vacant, the candidate 
who received the second highest number of votes (for the respective office) 
during the class election will occupy the position. To hold a class office a 
student must have a "C" average. 

At the beginning of each year the Sophomore Class arranges a welcome 
reception and dance for membersof the Freshman Class. 

In January members of the Sophomore Class elect the ten most out- 
standing Sophomores. The student receiving the largest number of votes 
will be designated the most outstanding Sophomore and will receive a 
trophy with his or her name engraved upon it at the annual Sophomore- 
Alumni Luncheon in June. 

In May of each year the Sophomre Class elects its Valedictorian from 
among the five students who have the highest academic average at that time. 



-26- 



FRESHMAN CLASS 



A meeting of the Freshman Class will be called immediately after 
the faculty has reported the first set of grades for the Fall Quarter. This 
meeting will be on November 1st in 1949. At this meeting the members of 
the Freshman Class will nominate candidates for the offices of President, 
Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and two Senators. The number of 
nominations is determined by the will of the class. These nominations are 
recorded and voted on by secret ballot. The four candidates receiving the 
largest number of votes will discharge their duties for the Fall, Winter, 
and Spring Quarters and will preside over the class meetings. 

If, for any reason, the President of the class must leave, the Vice- 
President assumes the duties of President. The candidate who received 
the second highest number of votes (for Vice-President) during class 
elections will occupy the office of Vice-President. If either the offices 
of the Secretary or Treasurer of the class becomes vacant, the candidate 
who received the second highest number of votes (for the respective office) 
during the class election will occupy the position. To hold a class office a 
student must have a "C" average. 






GRADUATION ACTIVITIES 



A graduation ceremony takes place at only one time each year, in 
June. The last week-end of the Spring Quarter is taken up with a number 
of activities relative to the happy occasion of graduation. The Beach Party 
and dinner for members of the Sophomore Class usually takes place on 
Friday. On Saturday of that week-end a luncheon is held for the members 
of the Sophomore Class and the Armstrong alumni. Students who have been 
admitted to membership in Alpha Lambda Sigma are awarded silver "A's." 
The actual awarding of diplomas is usually on the Monday following. Among 
the features of the ceremony are the address by the class Valedictorian, the 
awarding of publications keys and other honors and distinctions, in addition 
to the main address of the Commencement speaker. 



ARMSTRONG COLLEGE COUNSELORS 

P URPOSE OF COUNSELING SERVICE 

Counseling Service is provided by Armstrong College to give in- 
dividual, confidential help to any Armstrong student at his own request. 
Officially, "the guidance program should help students solve problems in 
areas pertaining to their pursuit of the college program. Such problems 
as that of vocational choice, academic program and personal adjustment 
to college life are typical". 

-The Counseling Staff is composed of W. Orson Beecher, Dorothy M. 
Thompson, Hinckley A. Murphy and Anna Cone, Secretary. 

PROBLEMS ON WHICH COUNSELING MAY BE HELPFUL 

Some of the "problems pertaining to their pursuit of the college pro- 
gram" are: 

Uncertainity in choice of objective or of Associate degree 
to be earned. 

Questions about abilities or aptitude for chosen field. 
Factors interfering with study. 

Conflict with college requirements on attendance, cur- 
riculum or with college regulations. 

Personal anxieties or conflicts that affect using the re- 
sources of the college to one's fullest ability. 

HOW TO USE YOUR COUNSELOR 

Any student wishing to discuss his problem may make an appointment 
with the Counselor of his choice by arranging it with Miss Cone, Counseling 
staff secretary, Room 105 Armstrong Building. The counselors are availa- 
ble six hours a day. Appointments of half-hour periods are scheduled and 
additional time is available by request. In the discussion every possible 
effort and skill is used by the counselor to help the student explore the facts 
affecting the questions he brings and to make a free choice or decision that 
will deal effectively with the problem. 

COMMUNITY GUIDANCE CENTER 

When the student requests services not provided officially at Arm- 
strong College, the Counselor can help in referring him or her to other 
community services - vocational, personality and aptitude testing service 
at the Community Guidance Center and information on vocational training 
provided through other agencies. 



COUNSELING SERVICE IS SEPARATE FROM THE FOLLOWING FUNCTIONS: 



Counselors do not replace use by the student of his individual instructors 
for help in a course taken with that instructor. It is strongly recommended 
that students use their instructors in dealing with problems arising out of a 
specific course. 

Counselors are informed on requirements and regulations of Arm- 
strong College but do not act as disciplinarians. Power of authority in 
Armstrong affairs is placed elsewhere and is not connected with counseling. 

The only administrative function of counselors is to sign a student's 
completed college program when it meets the curriculum requirements for 
a degree. (This completed program, with the student's signature and a 
counselor's signature, is now required for graduation.) 

Counseling is your service. Use it if you need it. 
PRE - REGISTRATION 



Shortly before the end of each quarter students then in attendance and 
who plan to register for the next quarter are required to pre-register if they 
have not already done so, by making an appointment with a counselor in order 
to make out a schedule of classes. At this time, the dates are listed on the 
calendar of events for the year, students are enrolled in the classes of their 
choice. Failure to pre-register may result in failure to secure admission 
to the classes which the student wants and at the hours at which he wants 
them. 

\ 



REPORTS AND GRADES 

It is felt by Armstrong T^fcar College that students in college should 
be held accountable for their own scholarship. Accordingly, report cards, 
warnings of deficient scholarship, and other such notices are not sent out 
to parents or guardians by the college except by request. Instead, the stu- 
dents themselves receive these reports and are expected to contact t"J*-e 
counseling staff whenever their work is unsatisfactory. Report cards are 
issued at the end of each quarter. Reports of failing grades are issued in 
the middle of each quarter. Each student has access to the counseling staff, 
made up of the faculty members for purposes of advisement; and in addition, / i 
the Registrar, D «a * of Student*, and all instructors are ever ready to help 
and advise any student seeking counsel. 

Reports are based on the following system of grading: 

A+ Exceptional 4 honor points per quarter hour 

A Excellent 3 honor points per quarter hour 

B Good 2 honor points per quarter hour 

C Fair 1 honor points per quarter hour 

D Poor No honor points per quarter hour 

E Conditional failure Condition must be removed before 

mid-term of the following quarter. 

F Failure Course must be repeated 

W Withdrew 

W/F Withdrew Failing 

No grades will be given out from the Registrar's Office. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Two-hour examinations are given for each course the last three days 
of the quarter. Examination schedules are posted on the bulletin boards 
approximately one week before the time the examinations are scheduled. 
Students may find out from individual instructors the value that final exami- 
nations are given in determining the final grade for the course. 

GRADUATION 

In order to graduate, a student must complete a program of study con- 
sisting of approximately 100 hours approved by the counselor with an average 
of one honor point for each hour scheduled. Students lacking 10 quarter hours 
or less for graduation may complete these hours at an accredited senior 
college and receive a diploma from Armstrong College upon application, 
furnishing the college with a transcript of the completed work. 

At least two quarters prior to expected graduation, a student will make 
application in the Registrar's Office to be considered as a candidate. 



/\ 



U 



ATTENDANCE . -^ ^ 

Any student will be automatically dropped from class when he has been 
absent from class, for whatever cause, a number of times equal to one-third 
of the times the class is scheduled to meet during the quarter. 



It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with his instructor to 
\ make up an announced quiz within a week of the date that the quiz was given. 
A fee of $2.00, payable to the Treasurer, will be charged. 

A student who arrives in class after the roll has been checked will be 
counted absent unless he presents the instructor with satisfactory explana- 
tion of his tardiness. 

Students are required to wait at least 15 minutes for an instructor if 
he is late for class. However, this is only a general rule and instructors 
may set up their own policy. Unless otherwise stated by the instructor the 
15 minute waiting period should be observed. 

Students are required to attend the college's bi-weekly assemblies. 
Official announcements are made at these meetings. 

MID-TERM GRADES 

In the middle of each quarter, warnings are sent to students who are 
making below average grades-in their courses. 

WITHDRAWALS 

A formal withdrawal, presented to the Registrar in writing, is a pre- 
requisite for honorable dismissal from, or re-entrance into, this institution. 
Any student planning to withdraw should immediately make such intentions 
known to the administration of the school in writing. This notice is required 
to receive any authorized refunds. 

In order that a student may not receive a failing grade on his perma- 
nent record in the Registrar's Office, he should make formal withdrawal from 
any class which he stops attending. The instructor's approval should be 
brought to the Registrar's office in writing. No refunds will be made for 
students dropping a course. 

Students will receive a prejudicial grade in a five-hour course dropped 
after the second week or three-hour course dropped after the third week of 
the quarter unless there are extenuating circumstances approved by the in- 
structor. 



DISMISSAL 

Any student failing (except in cases excused before examinations on 
account of illness) to pass at least one course other than physical educa - 
tion in any one quarter will be dropped from the rolls of the college. Any 
student who fails to make an average of at least 0.6 honor points per quarter 
hour in all work scheduled during the first three quarters work at the 
college will not be allowed to re-register. Withdrawal i srecommended to 
all students who have less than a "C" average at the end of the fourth 
quarter. At the end of the sixth quarter's work a student must have a 0.8 
honor point per quarter hour average in order to re-register. 

Students who have been asked to withdraw on account of academic 
deficiency will be re-admitted to Armstrong if the student goes to another 
college for one quarter and maintains a "C" average.. If a student does 
not go to another college he^may re-register at Armstrong after two 
quarters and enter on probation for one quarter, and maintaina "C" average. 



TRANSFER OF CREDIT 

Students transferring to Armstrong College receive credit for only 
10%( students to be given credit for fractions of a course) of the subjects 
for which they receive "D" grades. 

ADMISSION TO CLASS 






Students will be admitted to class when the instructor is furnished 
by the Registrar an official class card indicating that he has paid his fees 
in the Business Office. 

After the third day of classes, a student can only be admitted to a 
class with permission of the instructor and in no case will a student be 
admitted to the college after the second week of classes. It is understood 
that the faculty members are fully entitled to refuse admission of any stu- 
dent enrolled in the class where they feel the student has missed work 
that he would not be able to make up. 

TRANSCRIPTS OF CREDITS 

Each student is entitled to one official transcript of his college work. 
The charge for additional copies is $1.00 each. Requests must be made in 
writing and students should allow at least two weeks for a transcript to be 
sent. Requests are complied with as promptly as possible. Supplementary 
transcripts are not sent automatically at the end of the quarter; students 
should request same in writing.

INTRODUCTION 

To you, the new student, a hearty welcome is extended 
from the Sophomores and the Faculty. The "A" Book 
is your guide. It has been made small for your con- 
venience; so carry it around with you. It is hoped that 
this little book will give you the information you want 
concerning activities, rules, regulations and traditions of 
Armstrong College. 

You who receive this book are among the select few 
who are able to begin a college career. Your college life 
is a continuation of your previous life, but under new 
conditions. You have the opportunity to explore new 
fields of human endeavor and to associate with new 
groups of your fellow men and women. Do not waste 
that opportunity in idleness and in good intentions which 
you neglect to pursue. 

If you give generously of your time and energy to 
both your academic and your social activities at Arm- 
strong, you will receive a rich return of knowledge and 
friendship. If you do not give much of yourself, chances 
are you will not receive much. 

You have our every wish for the greatest possible en- 
richment of your life while you are an Armstrong Student. 

W. ORSON BEECHER, 
WILLIAM O'HAYER.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

The students and faculty will find the 1953 edition 
of the A-Book a useful source of information about life 
at Armstrong College of Savannah. This publication has 
been prepared by a student committee in an effort to 
help all of us become better acquainted with the college, 
its activities and traditions. 

Armstrong has been in operation since September, 1935. 
There are approximately 1200 graduates and more than 
half of these have transferred to senior colleges or other 
institutions of higher learning. A large proportion of 
these have become medical doctors, teachers, lawyers, 
engineers, scientists and have gone directly into business 
and into industry. By the leadership and scholarship they 
have shown, graduates have proved that these qualities 
are Armstrong traditions. The democratic spirit allows 
each student full opportunity for participation in college 
affairs. The high scholastic standard compels every stu- 
dent to keep on his toes mentally. As a city college sup- 
ported by the taxpayers of Savannah, Georgia, Arm- 
strong has always taken part in local activities and 
strives to serve the whole community. 

All students are expected to adopt Armstrong's high 
standards of scholarship and personal conduct as their own 
and to cooperate willingly in maintaining them, for few 
rules and regulations will be found in this book. Arm- 
strong's reputation is in the hands of its students, 

FOREMAN M. HAWES, 

President.

ALMA MATER 

Words by Margaret Spencer Lubs and 
Doris Falk, Class of 1939 

Alma Mater, through the ages, 
Singing thy undying fame, 
Will thy sons and daughters cherish 
And defend thy golden name. 
To each heart thy noble story 
And thy calm and stately grace 
Herald thine immortal glory. 
Armstrong, hail, all hail to thee! 

Alma Mater, those before us 
Lift thine honor great and strong; 
We who follow take their banner, 
Raise it with a fighting-song! 
Consecrated is thy teaching, 
Sacred is thy marble height, 
Glorious thy spirit reaching 
Ever upward to the light.

PEP SONG 

Words and Music by Claude Wilson, Class of 1940 

Watch out, foes, 'cause we're on our way, 

Cheering Armstrong onward today! 

Win or lose, good sports we will be, 

Gaining glory for dear old A. J. C! 

So hats off, all, in reverence to her, 

See her banners flying above her, 

Give three cheers, hooray! (Rah! Rah! Rah!) 

See her banners flying above her . . . 

We can't express it, but oh! gee! how we love her! 

So fight, fight is our song . . . 

Onward, old Armstrong!

tions given under its name. 

All posters placed on Armstrong College property must 
be initialed by someone in the office of the President or

funds are required to make use of any profits in the fol- 
lowing manner:

67% to be retained by that club to be used at its 
own discretion providing the money is not distrib- 
uted among its individual members. 

Each Student Senator is allowed to have 3 unexcused 
absences for the year. Legal excuses are: absence due to a 
death in the family, illness, or school business. Any stu-

Senate, in advance, of their desire to participate in this 
event. 

The College will provide each organization recognized 
by it with record books in which annually the officers, 
membership and activities of the organization will be re- 
corded. The purpose of this book is to make available to 
students at the beginning of each year some guide as 

— 12 — 



to the history and nature of the organization or club. 
These books are to be deposited during the summer in the 
office of the President. 

STUDENT FINANCES 

All regular students enrolled in Armstrong College pay 
a student activity fee of $5.00 per quarter. The money, 
known as the Student Activity Fund, is used to finance 
such activities as the Student Senate approves. A yearly 
budget is drawn up each fall and appropriations are voted 
by the Senate based on requests from the student activity 
groups. 

Each student receives a student identification card 
which entitles him to admission to performances of the 
Armstrong Masquers, Inter-collegiate sporting contests, 
the college annual, the 'Geechee, the Mercury, and the 
Inkwell, the college dances, performances of the Film 
Club and other such benefits as are covered by the 
student finances. As an individual you get more than you 
give. 

Past budgets are on record in the business office and 
are also to be found in the second or third Fall issue of 
the Inkwell.

BUILDINGS 

The activities of Armstrong College students are car- 
ried on in six buildings. 

ARMSTRONG BUILDING 

The College was first housed in the Armstrong Build- 
ing, located at the corner of Bull and Gaston Streets. 
This building was a gift of Mrs. Lucy Moltz, the widow of 
the late George F. Armstrong. In the Armstrong Building 
are the administration offices of the President, the Reg- 
istrar, the Director of Evening College, and the Busi- 
ness Manager. The offices of a number of faculty mem- 

— 15 — 



bers, a portion of the classrooms, and the student publi- 
cations are also located in the Armstrong Building. In 
the Basement of the Armstrong Building are located a 
photographic dark-room, a recreation room, and a locker- 
room for the women students. 

JENKINS HALL 

Jenkins Hall, named in honor of Herschel V. Jenkins, 
Chairman of the Armstrong College Commission and ben- 
efactor of the College, contains class rooms, the audi- 
torium and a locker-room for the men students. 

LANE BUILDING 

The Lane Building, the gift of the late Mills B. Lane, 
houses the Mental Health Clinic and Armstrong Class- 
rooms. The Lane Building is to the west of Jenkins Hall 
and fronts on Gaston Street. 

GAMBLE BUILDING 

Gamble Hall, named in honor of the late Mayor Thomas 
Gamble, who played a leading role in the establishment 
of Armstrong College, faces Monterey Square on Bull 
Street, Gamble Hall houses classrooms, faculty offices, 
and the biology, chemistry, and physics laboratories. 

HUNT BUILDING 

The John W. Hunt Memorial Building, on the south- 
west corner of Bull and Gordon Streets, contains the lab- 
oratories and classrooms of the Home Economics depart- 
ment, Music room, a lounge for women students and fac- 
ulty offices. 

— 16 — 



The Armstrong Student Center occupies the ground 
floor of the Hunt Building and offers food and refresh- 
ments and a good place to relax and rest. 

The College Bookstore which handles textbooks and sup- 
plies, is also located in the Student Center. 

ARMSTRONG LIBRARY 

Armstrong College Library is housed in the building 
of the Georgia Historical Society, located on the south- 
west corner of Whitaker and Gaston Streets. On the 
ground floor of the Library is a periodicals reading room 
and on the main floor is the general reading room and 
the major part of the book collection. The quiet and com- 
fort of the Library provide the best atmosphere in 
which to study. 

ARMSTRONG LEADERSHIP SOCIETY 

High scholastic attainment among Armstrong students 
is recognized publicly through the Dean's List of scholas- 
tic attainment and through graduation with honor. 

The quality of leadership is encouraged and rewarded 
wherever one is. Leadership in student activities at Arm- 
strong College is recognized by the Armstrong Leadership 
Society, Alpha Lambda Sigma. The symbol of such rec- 
ognition is an award of a silver "A". The requirements 
for membership in Alpha Lambda Sigma are met when 
a student receives one major and two minor honors dis- 
tributed in three different fields of activity and has a 
total of twenty points. Recipients of the silver "A" 
must also have an academic average of at least a "C". 

Points contributing toward the award, described below, 

— 17 — 



must be reported to the President's Office either by offi- 
cers of the organizations or by the student who earns the 
points. Points may be accumulated from one year to the 
next but the award is only made once to any given stu- 
dent. The Silver U A M will be given at the Sophomore- 
Alumni Luncheon.

HOMECOMING 

Each year just before Christmas all students who have 
attended Armstrong are welcomed back for a visit. This 
occasion is called Homecoming and the program for the 

— 20 — 



day for several years past has consisted of a parade, a 
reception in the Armstrong Building, a basketball game, 
and a dance. The parade consists of floats prepared by 
various student clubs, the most outstanding receiving a 
trophy on which is engraved the name of the sponsoring 
organization. 

There shall be a minimum of ten floats in the Home- 
coming Parade (by act of the Student Senate). The clubs 
of the college will notify the Senate, in advance, of their 
desire to participate in this event. 

The reception in the Armstrong Building lobby consists 
of a receiving line of members of the College Commis- 
sion, administration, faculty, alumni officers and mem- 
bers of the Homecoming Committee. Membership in the 
Homecoming Committee is open to all who would like to 
participate and carries two minor points toward the 
silver "A" award. Students currently enrolled in the Col- 
lege are urged to attend the Homecoming reception so 
as to meet the alumni. The basketball game is usually 
one of the biggest games of the year. At the dance, the 
Freshman Class presents the coronation of the Freshman 
King and Queen and their court. At least 8 couples should 
be nominated for Homecoming King and Queen and in 
the elimination of couples, there should be a King and 
Queen elected and 4 couples in the court. It is thus the 
big event for Armstrong Students of the Christmas Hol- 
iday season. 

OPEN HOUSE 

Each year in the spring quarter the faculty and stu- 
dents of Armstrong invite the general public to come in 
to see what is being done at Armstrong. Each depart- 

— 21 — 



ment of the College organizes a student committee to 
prepare a display of the work being done by that de- 
partment. Parents and friends of Armstrong students 
and of high school students are cordially invited to pay 
us a visit during open house. There is a student and a 
faculty general Open House Committee, the purpose of 
which is to coordinate what is one of the most important 
enterprises conducted by the College. 

DANCES 

All dances sponsored by the College for the student body 
are organized by the Dance Committee. The Dance Com- 
mittee is composed of a representative of each officially 
recognized student organization and of other students 
who are interested in this particular activity. The fol- 
lowing dances are planned annually and paid for by an 
appropriation from the Student Activity Fund: 
Halloween Dance October 

Valentine Dance" February 
Spring Dance May 

-The GEECHEE Staff presents the results of the stu- 
dent's choice of Armstrong Beauties at the Valentine 
Dance. 

The Homecoming Dance on the 3rd week of December 
is planned by the Dance Committee but is paid for by 
the College. The Coronation of Freshman King and Queen 
is an outstanding feature of this dance. 

Generally, the Sophomores give a dance for the Fresh- 
men at the beginning of the school year and the Fresh- 
men give a graduation dance for the Sophomores the night 
of Graduation. 

— 22 — 



Informal dances, in addition to those named above, are 
arranged from time to time. Any society wishing to give 
a dance must obtain permission in writing from the Dance 
Committee and must abide by the regulations made by 
the committee. All dances must be cleared through the 
Office of the President in order to avoid confusion of 
activities. 

SPORTS 

Armstrong seeks to promote sportsmanship and good 
health through a program of intramural and inter-col- 
legiate sports. The inter-collegiate sports in which Arm- 
strong teams usually participate are basketball, tennis, 
golf, and swimming. Intramural sports are organized 
through the eight intramural clubs, the managers of which 
constitute the two Intramural Boards, the Men's Intra- 
mural Board and the Women's Intramural Board. These 
Organizations are described under the heading "Clubs." 

PUBLICATIONS 

The three publications of Armstrong College are the 
Inkwell, a college newspaper, the Mercury, a quarterly 
magazine and the Geechee, the college annual. 

These three publications are distributed to all students 
free of charge and are financed by the Student Activity 
Fee, which is paid at the beginning of each quarter. 

An organization meeting will be called by the Editor- 
in-Chief of each publication during the first week of the 
school year. At this time all students interested in posi- 
tions on the staffs are invited to be present to discuss 
policies and plans for the year and to receive first as- 
signments. 

— 23 — 



The Inkwell will be distributed during the fall, winter, 
and spring quarters. The Mercury will be distributed at 
the end of each quarter. The Geechee will be distributed 
at the end of the spring quarter. 

PUBLICATIONS ELECTIONS 

Positions of Editor-in-Chief, Managing Editor and Bus- 
iness Manager of each publication will be chosen by elec- 
tions to be held during the last month of the Spring 
Quarter. To be eligible a student must have served on 
either of the staffs during his or her Freshman year, 
and must have had some former experience in journalism. 
The student must also maintain a '*C" average. 

The above requirements are considered by the Publica- 
tions Board in making nominations for the offices. The 
Board is composed of the Editor-in-Chiefs, Managing Edi- 
tors, Business Managers and the Faculty Advisor of the 
publications and three other faculty members appointed 
by the President. 

Positions on the staff of the Inkwell, other than elec- 
tive, are appointed by the newly elected officers during 
the first month of the Fall Quarter, and sometimes during 
the* Fall Quarter for the Geechee staff. 

PUBLICATIONS KEYS 

During the Spring Quarter, the Publications Board will 
meet to nominate and elect the recipients of Keys given 
as awards for outstanding work on the three College Pub- 
lications. Each publication will award three Keys. The 
Board is charged with selection of a suitable Key.

CLUBS 

Beta Lambda 

Beta Lambda is the Armstrong branch of the national 
Home Economics sorority. The purpose of this organiza- 
tion is to bring together some students who are interested 
in professional Home Economics and in homemaking and 
its members have many opportunities during the year to 
participate in receptions, dances and national and state 
meetings. 

Masquers 

The Armstrong Masquers are organized for the pur- 
pose of promoting interest in acting. This Club helps de- 
velop theatrical ability through the reading and actual 
performance of plays. All members of the Masquers assist 
in productions, and thus add greatly to their stage exper- 
ience. Under the direction of an experienced director, 
the club plays a very vital part in the life at Armstrong. 

Debate Forum 

The Debate Forum provides an opportunity for stu- 
dents who want to train themselves in logical thinking 
and public speaking. Armstrong debate teams meet other 
colleges here in Savannah and make two or three trips 
a year to challenge such neighboring institutions as Emory 
University, Citadel, University of Georgia and the Uni- 
versity of Florida. 

Glee Club 

The dual purposes of the Glee Club are the fulfillment 
of the desire of those students who enjoy singing choral 
arrangements, and the furnishing of superior vocal music 
for the College. 

— 25 — 



Music Club 

The aim of the Music Club is to develop a greater ap- 
preciation of fine music, and to provide the Club members 
with a weekly evening of pleasant enjoyment. These in- 
formal Club meetings are held at the homes of various 
members or here at the school. 

Newman Club 

The Newman Club, organized in 1949, has as its pur- 
pose the bringing together of students interested in the 
life and works of Cardinal Newman and Catholic philos- 
ophy in general. Membership is open to all students. 

Philosophy Seminar 

The Philosophy Seminar meets twice a month for the 
purpose of analyzing and discussing books of permanent 
value and of great interest in the fields of philosophy. 

Science Club 

The Science Club is not only a Club for students who 
are majoring in some field of science, but for all students 
who are interested in new developments in the various 
fields. Its activities range from educational talks by 
prominent teachers and leaders to motion pictures and 
scientific expeditions. 

Intramural Sport Clubs 
Men's Intramural Board 

The Men's Intramural Board, with the aid of the Ath- 
letic Director, plans the sports program for the men in 
the College. This board is composed of one member of 
each of the 4 boy's teams which are: the Scholars, the 

— 26 — 



Gators, the Terrapins, and the Loafers. The three most 
outstanding sports in the athletic program are two-handed 
touch football, basketball, and softball. It is the aim of 
the Board to encourage greater participation in sports at 
Armstrong. 

Women's Intramural Board 

The Women's Intramural Board seeks to enlist all girls 
in the athletic program of the College. It is organized 
similarly to the men's board and is composed of the team 
captains from each of the four teams: the Co-Eds, the 
Glamazons, the Sassy-Strutters, and the Slick Chicks. 
These teams compete in ping-pong, basketball, softball, 
swimming, tennis and other sports during the year. 

Math Club 

The primary aim of the Math Club is to give students 
who have a special interest in mathematics an oppor- 
tunity to further their understanding of the subject be- 
yond ordinary college requirements. The club has interest- 
ing programs and includes social functions as well. 

Baptist Student Union 

The Baptist Student Union was organized in the Fall 
of 1952. It's purpose is to promote Christian fellowship 
among students. Membership is open to all students who 
wish to join. 

Tumbling Club 

The Tumbling Club provides an opportunity for those 
interested students to further develop their skill in ac- 
robatic feats. This organization is open for membership to 
anyone who desires to participate. 

— 27 — 



Radio Workshop 

The Radio Workshop is a club whose desire is to in- 
crease their technical knowledge of radio. It gives an 
opportunity to the student to acquire experience in di- 
recting, acting, reading and making sound effects just 
as a regular radio broadcasting station would operate. 

Sororities 

Two sororities are recognized by Armstrong College: 
Delta Chi and Alpha Tau Beta. Membership is by invi- 
tation. 



SOPHOMORE CLASS 

As soon as possible after the beginning of the Fall 
Quarter an administrative officer of the college will call 
a meeting of the Sophomore Class. At this meeting 
class officers will be nominated. Nominations are made 
from the floor for the offices of President, Vice-President, 
Secretary and Treasurer. The number of nominations will 
be determined by the will of the class. These nominations 
are recorded and voted on by secret ballot. The four can- 
didates receiving the largest number of votes will dis- 
charge their duties for the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quar- 
ters and will preside over the class meetings. 

If, for any reason, the President of the class must leave, 
the Vice-President assumes the duties of President. The 
candidate who received the second highest number of votes 
(for Vice-President) during class elections will occupy the 
office of Vice-President. If either the offices of the Sec- 
retary or Treasurer of the class become vacant, the can- 
didate who received the second highest number of votes 

— 28 — 



(for the respective office) during the class election will 
occupy the position. To hold a class office a student 
must have a "C" average. 

At the beginning of each year the Sophomore Class ar- 
ranges a welcome reception and dance for members of the 
Freshman Class. 

In January members of the Sophomore Class elect the 
ten most outstanding Sophomores. The student receiving 
the largest number of votes will be designated the most 
outstanding Sophomore and will receive a trophy with 
his or her name engraved upon it at the annual Soph- 
omore-Alumni Luncheon in June. 

FRESHMAN CLASS 

A meeting of the Freshman Class will be called imme- 
diately after the faculty has reported the first set of 
grades for the Fall Quarter. This meeting will be during 
the first week of November. At this meeting the mem- 
bers of the Freshman Class will nominate candidates for 
the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treas- 
urer and two Senators. The number of nominations is 
determined by the will of the class. These nominations are 
recorded and voted on by secret ballot. The four candi- 
dates receiving the largest number of votes will dis- 
charge their duties for the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quar- 
ters and will preside over the class meetings. 

If, for any reason, the President of the class must 
leave, the Vice-President assumes the duties of President. 
The candidate who received the second highest number 
of votes (for Vice-President) during class elections will 
occupy the office of Vice-President. If either the offices 
of the Secretary or Treasurer of the class becomes vacant, 

— 29 — 



the candidate who received the second highest number of 
votes (for the respective office) during the class election 
will occupy the position. To hold a class office a student 
must have a "C" average. 

A regular time for meetings of the Freshman Class will 
be provided. 

The Freshman Class plays a great part in Homecoming. 
It has the responsibility for planning the coronation at 
the Homecoming Dance, buys the flowers and gifts for 
the Queen and four attendants in the court, and decorates 
the throne. 

The Candidates for King and Queen are nominated and 
through the process of elimination, a King and Queen and 
four couples will be selected. 

GRADUATION ACTIVITIES 

A graduation ceremony takes place at only one time 
each year, in June. The last week-end of the Spring Quar- 
ter is taken up with a number of activities relative to 
the happy occasion of graduation. The Beach Party and 
dinner for members of the Sophomore Class usually takes 
place on Friday. On Saturday of that week-end a lunch- 
eon is held for the members of the Sophomore Class and 
the Armstrong alumni. Students who have been admitted 
to membership in Alpha Lambda Sigma are awarded sil- 
ver "AV\ The actual awarding of diplomas is usually 
on the Monday following. Among the features of the 
ceremony are the address by the class Valedictorian, the 
awarding of publication keys and other honors and dis- 
tinctions, in addition to the main address of the Com- 
mencement speaker.

ORIENTATION AND ADVISEMENT 

The counseling and advisement service of Armstrong 
College of Savannah offers help in solving problems con- 
nected with the student's college program. 

Students are urged to request help from their instruct- 
ors when the difficulty is one concerned with the subject 
itself and having no complications. The areas with which 
the adviser is usually concerned are choices of vocation, 
the planning of work in college, study habits generally 
and personal adjustment to college life. Those problems 
which do not fit into these general categories either be- 
cause of greater intensity or critical development are 
referable to community agencies outside the college if this 
is agreeable to the student and his parents or guardians. 

During the year 1952-53 the academic advisement of 
students was distributed among the entire faculty so that 
each instructor carried the responsibility for a proportion- 
ate number of the entire student body registered in the 
daytime program. Advisement interviews were scheduled 
with each student at least once a quarter and appoint- 
ments for these interviews were mailed from the Office 
of the President. These interviews were designed to aid 
the student in planning his program of work in college. 
In addition to the advisement program, a program of col- * 
lege orientation was set up for freshman students begin- 
ning during Freshman Week and continuing throughout 
the year. Under this program the freshman class was di- (Of 
vided into groups of from fifteen to twenty students to 
meet at 1:30 each Thursday throughout the year. Attend- 
ance was strongly urged and one quarter hour's credit 
granted for the completion of the full year. During the 
year a similar program for Sophomores was instituted. 

— 31 — 



PRE-REGISTRATION 

Shortly before the end of each quarter students then 
in attendance and who plan to register for the next quar- 
ter are required to pre-register if they have not already 
done so, by making an appointment with a counselor in 
order to make out a schedule of classes. At this time, the 
dates are listed on the calendar of events for the year, 
students are enrolled in the classes of their choice. Fail- 
ure to pre-register may result in failure to secure admis- 
sion to the classes which the student wants and at the 
hours at which he wants them. 

REPORTS AND GRADES 

It is felt that students in college should be held account- 
able for their own scholarship. Accordingly, report cards, 
warnings of deficient scholarship, and other such notices 
are not sent out to parents or guardians by the college 
except by request. Instead, the students themselves re- 
ceive these reports and are expected- to contact their 
advisor whenever their work is unsatisfactory. Report 
cards are issued at the end of each quarter. Each student 
has access to the counseling staff, made up of the faculty 
members for purposes of advisement; and in addition, 
the Registrar and all instructors are ever ready to help 
and advise any student seeking counsel. 

Reports are based on the following system of grading: 

A Superior 4 honor points per quarter hour 

A Exceptional 3 honor points per quarter hour 

B Above average 2 honor points per quarter hour 

C Average 1 honor point per quarter hour 

— 32 — 



D Barely Passing No honor points per quarter hour 
E Incomplete An incomplete must be removed be- 

fore mid-term of the following 
quarter. 
F Failure 
W Withdrew 
W F Withdrew Failing 

No grades will be given out from the Registrar's 
Office. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Two-hour examinations are given for each course the 
last three days of the quarter. Examination schedules are 
posted on the bulletin boards approximately one week 
before the time the examinations are scheduled. Students 
may find out from individual instructors the value that 
final examinations are given in determining the final 
grade for the course. 

GRADUATION 

In order to graduate, a student must complete a pro- 
gram of study consisting of approximately 96 hours ap- 
proved by the counselor with an average of one honor 
point for each hour scheduled. Students lacking 10 
quarter hours or less for graduation may complete these 
hours at an accredited senior college and receive a di- 
ploma from Armstrong College upon application, furn- 
ishing the college with a transcript of the completed 
work.

ATTENDANCE 

Any student will be automatically dropped from class 
when he has accumulated unexcused absences in excess 
of 1 of the number of times the class meets each week. 

It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with 
his instructor to make up an announced quiz within a 
week of the date that the quiz was given. A fee of $2.00, 
payable to the Treasurer, will be charged. 

Legal excuses for absences are: absence due to a death 
in the family, illness, or school business. 

Students are required to wait at least 15 minutes for 
an instructor if he is late for class. However, this is only 
a general rule and instructors may set up their own policy. 
Unless otherwise stated by the instructor the 15 minute 
waiting period should be observed. 

Students are required to attend the college's bi-weekly 
assemblies. Official announcements are made at these 
meetings. 

MID-TERM GRADES 

In the middle of each quarter, warnings are sent to 
students who are making below average grades in their 
courses. 

WITHDRAWALS 

A formal withdrawal, presented to the Registrar in 
writing, is a prerequisite for honorable dismissal from, 
or re-entrance into, this institution. Any student planning 
to withdraw should immediately make such intentions 
known to the administration of the school in writing. This 
notice is required to receive any authorized refunds. 

— 34 — 



In order that a student may not receive a failing 
grade on his permanent record in the Registrars Office, 
he should make formal withdrawal from any class which 
he stops attending. The instructor's approval should be 
brought to the Registrar's Office in writing. No refunds 
will be made for students dropping a course. 

Students will receive a prejudicial grade in a five-hour 
course dropped after the second week or three-hour course 
dropped after the third week of the quarter unless there 
or extenuating circumstances approved by the instructor. 

DISMISSAL 

Any student failing (except in cases excused before 
examinations on account of illness) to pass at least one 
course other than physical education in any one quarter 
will be dropped from the rolls of the college. Any stu- 
dent who fails to make an average of at least 0.6 honor 
points per quarter hour in all work scheduled during the 
first three quarters work at the college will not be al- 
lowed to re-register. Withdrawal is recommended to all 
students who have less than a W C M average at the end 
of the fourth quarter. At the end of the sixth quarter's 
work a student must have a 0.8 honor point per quarter 
hour average in order to re-register. 

Students who have been asked to withdraw on account 
of academic deficiency will be re-admitted to Armstrong 
if the student goes to another college for one quarter and 
maintains a "C" average. If a student does not go to an- 
other college he may re-register at Armstrong after two 
quarters and enter on probation for one quarter, and 
maintain a ''C" average.

INTRODUCTION 

Welcome to Armstrong 1 ! The faculty, staff and 
sophomore class cordially greet you at the door of a 
new phase in your educational career. This, our "A" 
Book, is designed to be your introduction and guide to 
student activities and academic matters at Armstrong 
College. As such, it is not intended to be an all-inclusive 
source of information about our college, since many 
things about college life you will best learn by experienc- 
ing them and others are simply difficult to express in 
words. 

Perhaps the first thing that will strike you about 
college is that nothing will be forced upon you. Indeed 
for many it becomes the first opportunity to assert 
thenlselves in some way as free agents, to accept the 
responsibilities that are thrust upon them be a higher 
education; for others it may simply be another step on 
the incline plane of intellectual indifference. 

But rest assured that what you receive from Arm- 
strong, whether it be intellectual development through 
your studies or social and personal development through 
a variety of extra-currirular activities, it will come 
principally as a result of your willingness to accept the 
initiative in pursuing the cherished opportunity for a 
liberal education that is our birthright.

And defend thy golden name.

And thy calm and stately grace 
Herald thine immortal glory.

Left thine honor great and strong; 
We who follow take their banner, 
Raise it with a fighting-song! 
Consecrated is thy teachimg, 
Sacred is thy marble height, 
Glorious thy spirit reaching 
Ever upward to the light.

STUDENT FINANCES 

All regular students at Armstrong College pay a 
quarterly student activity fee of $5.00. This money, 
known as the Student Activity Fund, is used to finance 
such activities as the Student Senate approves. A yearly 

— 9 — 



budget is drawn up in the fall and appropriations are 
approved by the Senate based on requests of the various 
organizations according to certain general principles es- 
tablished by the Senate. 

This method of financing student activities enables 
the college to admit students without charge to all 
college dances, performances by the college Masquers 
and intercollegiate sports events. In addition it entitles 
the students to copies of the college newspaper, The 
Inkwell, and the college annual, The Geechee, as well as 
many other benefits. 

Past budgets of the Senate are on record in the 
business office and may also be found recorded in back 
issues of the Inkwell on file in the library. 

All club activities that utilize college facilities to 
raise funds are required to make use of any profits in 
the following manner: 

33% to Armstrong College for general use as rec- 
ommended by the club; and 

67% to be retained by the club to be used at its own 
discretion providing the money is not distributed 
among the members. 

ATTENDANCE AT SENATE MEETINGS 

The responsibility of representing a club as Senate 
Representative is one of the most important a student 
may hold at Armstrong. In order that each club may 
fully share in the job of regulating student affairs it is 
necessary that each representative respect the rules of 
the Senate regarding attendance at meetings. 

Each senate representative is allowed three unex- 

— 10 — 



cused absences from senate meetings for the year. Any 
representative will be automatically dropped from the 
Senate rolls when he has accumulated any absences in 
excess of the number permitted. Legal excuses for ab- 
sence are: a death in the family, illness, school business 
or religious holidays. 

In a case of excessive absences a formal letter of 
dismissal will be sent to the organization involved. An- 
other Senate Representative will be elected immediately. 

ORGANIZATIONAL ACTIVITIES 

Any organization desiring to hold a dance, hsuse- 
party or other official funrtion, should request permission 
to hold such an affair from the Advisor for Student 
Activities. 

No organization recognized by Armstrong may serve 
or arrange to serve alcoholic beverages at any function 
given under its name. 

CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS

are The Inkwell, the college newspaper, and the 'Geechee,

by the Student Activity Fund, are distributed free of 
charge to all regular students.

from various churches in the community. Although each 
club serves the need of the students of a particular faith, 
membership in any club is open to any student desiring 
to participate in its activities. These clubs are: 

Baptist Student Union — for students of the Baptist 
faith. 

Canterbury Club — the club for Episcopal students.

and good health through a program of intercollegiate and 
intramural sports.

team by providing the necessary stimulus to school spirit 
during the home games. Five cheerleaders and two al- 
ternates are chosen by the student body at a special 
assembly held during the fall quarter. 

DANCE COMMITTEE 

The Dance Committee makes all arrangements for 
the principal dances of the school calendar. It chooses 
the band, rents a hall, where necessary, and appoints 
committees, such as a decoration committee, to handle 
particular aspects of such an affair. In addition to the 
scheduled dances, informal dances are arranged periodical- 
ly by this committee. 

DEBATE FORUM 

The Debate Forum provides opportunity for students 
interested in public speaking and logical thinking to 
participate in a program of intramural and intercollegiate 
debating. The college debate team makes several trips 
a year to neighboring colleges to participate in inter- 
collegiate debating and also enters regional intercol- 
legiate debate tournaments. 

GLEE CLUB 

The Glee Club offers the musically inclined student 
the opportunity to express himself through the singing 
of good choral music. The Glee Club gives two concerts 
a year, at Christmas and in the Spring, sings on assem- 
blies, and joins the college Masquers in the production 
of musicals.

MASQUERS 

The Armstrong Masquers is the college dramatic 
group. It provides theatrical experience and helps de- 
velop dramatic ability through the reading and production 
of plays. Many kinds of talent are needed in such an 
organization so membership is not limited only to those 
who desire to act. Under the guidance of an experienced 
director this club is one of the most popular at Arm- 
strong.

participate in the production of radio plays and to gain

nical end of radio brodacasting.

publication keys. Four such awards are usually made 
by each publication. Selection of the recipients is made 
by the editors of the publications and the Advisor for 
Student Publications. 

SPORTS AWARDS 

The award for participation in intercollegiate sports 
is the Armstrong letter "A" on a sweater or a jacket. 
Recipients are chosen by the coach and the award is 
made at the annual basketball banquet. 

In girls' intramural sports a trophy is awarded the 
winning teams in basketball and volleyball. Outstanding 
players also receive letters or emblems. 

OUTSTANDING SOPHOMORES 

In January members of the Sophomore Class hold 
elections for Outstanding Sophomores. Nine outstanding 
sophomores are elected including one named Most Out- 
standing. Recognition of the student receiving the latter 
title is made by the award of the Outstanding Sophomore 
Trophy during graduation ceremonies. 

MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVITY 

HOMECOMING 

Each year during the Christmas Holidays all Arm- 
strong alumni are welcomed back at an annual Home- 
coming. The Homecoming Festivities include a basketball 
game and the President's Reception and Homecoming 
Dance. A highlight of the Homecoming dance is the 

— 19 — 



presentation of the Freshman King and Queen of Home- 
coming and the four couples that comprise their court. 

DANCES 

There are three regularly scheduled dances of the 
school calender. These are the Halloween Dance in 
October, the Valentine Dance in February and the Spring 
Dance in May. These dances are planned by the Dance 
Committee and financed with student activity money. 
Other dances are the Homecoming dance, financed by 
the college, but arranged by the Dance Committee, and 
the Graduation Dance, arranged and financed by the 
Freshman Class. In addition to these, informal dances

THE CAMPUS 

Buildings 

The activities of Armstrong College are carried on 
in six buildings: 

Armstrong Building: The Armstrong Building, the first 
college building, was the gift of Mrs. Lucy Moltz, the 
widow of the late George F. Armstrong. This building 
contains the offices of the President, the Registrar, the 
Director of the Evening College, and the Secretary and 
Treasurer. A number of faculty offices, as well as 
classrooms and the student publication office, are also 
located in the Armstrong Building. The basement of this 
building contains a locker room for women students, a 
ceramics lab and a recreation room. It is located on the 
corner of Bull and Gaston Streets. 

Jenkins Hall: Jenkins Hall, named in honor of Herschel 
V. Jenkins, Chairman of the College Commisison and 
benefactor of the college, contains classrooms, a locker 

— 20 — 



room for men students and the college auditorium. Its 
entrance faces Gaston Street. 

Lane Building: The Lane Building is the gift of the 
late Mills B. Lane. Located west of Jenkins Hall on 
Gaston Street it contains faculty offices and classrooms. 
An annex in the rear of the Lane Building houses the 
Student Personnel Services Center. 

Gamble Hall: Named in honor of the late Mayor Thomas 
Gamble who played a leading role in the establishment 
of Armstrong College, Gamble Hall faces Monterey 
Square on Bull Street. This building houses classrooms, 
faculty offices, and the biology, chemistry and physics 
laboratories. A recent addition to Gamble Hall, also 
known as the Science Building, has greatly expanded its 
facilities.

ACADEMIC INFORMATION 
Orientation and Advisement 

The counseling and advisement service of Armstrong 
College of Savannah offers help in solving problems 
connected with the student's college program. 

Students are urged to request help from their in- 
structors when the difficulty is one concerned with the 
subject itself and having no complications. The areas 
with which the adviser is usually concerned are choice 
of vocation, the planninjg of work in college, study habits 
generally and personal adjustment to college life. Those 
problems which do not fit into these general categories, 
either because of greater intensity or critical develop- 
ments, are referable to community agencies outside the 
college if this is agreeable to the student and his parents 
or guardians. 

The academic advisement of students is distributed 
among the entire faculty so that each instructor carries 
the responsibility for a proportionate number of the en- 
tire student body registered in the day program. Advise- 
ment interviews are scheduled with each student at least 
once a quarter and appointments for these interviews 
are mailed from the office of the Registrar. These 
interviews are designed to aid the student in planning 
his program of work in college. 
Student Personnel Services 

In the fall of 1957 the office of Student Personnel 
Services was added to the advisement program discussed 
above. The services available are as follows: individual 
diagnostic tests for students of high ability and low per- 

— 22 — 



formance; vocational aptitude tests on an individual 
basis; and short-time counseling with students whose 
difficulties in adjusting- to college life, either academic, 
or social, require help beyond that which may be given 
by advisors and instructors. 

Student Personnel Services also attempts to help the 
student to choose a senior college and to plan his pro- 
gram according to requirements of the senior college. 
Information concerning scholarships may be obtained 
through this office. 

Pre-Registration 

Shortly before the end of each quarter students then 
in attendance who plan to register for the next quarter 
are required to pre-register. An appointment is made 
with the student's advisor to make out a schedule of 
classes and the student is enrolled at this time in the 
class of his choice. Failure to pre-register may result 
in failure to secure admission to the courses of the 
student's choice at the hours he desires them. 

Attendance 

Attendance at class is required of all students. A 
student is permitted unexcused absences from class equal 
to the number of times the class meets per week. Any 
cuts in excess of this number will result in automatic 
dismissal from the class. 

Legal excuses for absences are: death in the family, 
religious holidays, illness and official school business. 

If an absence from class results in the student miss- 
ing an announced quiz it is the student's responsibility 
to arrange a make-up quiz within a week. A fee of 

— 23 — 



$2.00 for a quiz and $5.00 for a final exam or lab final, 
payable to the Treasurer, will be charged. 

As a general rule students are required to wait 
fifteen minutes if an instructor is late for class. Unless 
the instructor specifies another policy the fifteen minute 
waiting period should be observed. 

Students are required to attend the college's sched- 
uled assemblies. These are held during the activity 
period on the average of once a month and offer official 
school announcements and programs of varied types. 

Examinations 

During the last three days of the quarter a two- 
hour examination is given in each course. Examination 
schedules are posted on the bulletin boards approximately 
one week before the beginning of the examinations. The 
policy of the individual instructors determines the value 
of the final exam in deciding the final grade for a course. 

Reports and Grades 

At Armstrong responsibility for scholarship rest 
solely upon the student. Accordingly, report cards, warn- 
ings of deficient scholarship, and other such notices are 
sent to the students rather than their parents or guar- 
dians. Report cards are issued at the end of each quarter. 
At mid-term, warnings in the form of pink slips are 
sent to all students making a "D" or below in any 
course. 

A student doing unsatisfactory work in a course is 
expected to take the initiative in contacting his advisor 
for counseling. In addition to the regular advisors, the 
registrar and all instructors are ever ready to help and

consecutive quarters taking a normal load (not less than 
fifteen hours per quarter), and achieving an average 
grade of "B" or better with no grade below that of "C" 
will be placed on the Permanent Dean's List. This list is 
published each June in the commencement program. 

Students taking a normal load who make a "B" or 
better in each course during any quarter will be placed 
on the Dean's Scholastic Attainment List. 
Valedictorian

a valedictorian from the five students wtih the highest 
scholastic average during their stay at Armstrong. Grad- 

— 25 — 



uates of Armstrong through its evening program are also 
eligible for this honor. 

Withdrawals 

A formal withdrawal, presented to the Registrar in 
writing, is a pre-requisite for honorable dismissal from, 
or re-entrance into, this institution. Any student planning 
to withdraw should immediately make sudh intentions 
known to the administration of the college in writing. 
This notice is required to receive any authorized refunds. 

A student should formally withdraw from any class 
which he discontinues by securing the written approval 
of the instructor and his faculty adviser. This written 
approval should be filed in the Registrar's office. Grades 
assigned to those who withdraw will be either W or 
W/F. A student who withdraws within three weeks after 
the beginning of the quarter will automatically receive a 
grade of W. A student Who withdraws after the 3rd 
week of the quarter will receive either a W or W/F de- 
pending upon his status at the time the student with- 
draws or is dropped from class. 

Dismissal 

Any day student failing (except in cases excused 
before examinations on account of illness) to pass at 
least one course other than physical education in any 
one quarter will be dropped from the rolls of the college. 
Any student who fails to make an average of at least 0.6 
honor points per quarter hour in all work scheduled dur- 
ing the first three quarters work at the college will not 
be allowed to re-register. Withdrawal is recommended 
to all students who have less than a "C" average at the 
end of the fourth quarter. At the end of the sixth quar- 

— 26 — 



ter's work a student must have an 0.8 honor point per 
quarter hour average in order to re-register. 

Students who have been asked to withdraw on ac- 
count of academic deficiency will be re-admitted to Arm- 
strong if the student goes to another college for one 
quarter and maintains a "C" average. If a student does 
not go to another college he may re-register at Arm- 
strong after two quarters. He re-enters on probation for 
one quarter, during which quarter he must make a "C" 
average. 

Admission to Advanced Standing 

Credit will be allowed for work done in other insti- 
tutions of proper rank and standing and in certain cases 
for training received in the Armed Services. Credit from 
other institutions will be accepted toward graduation to 
the extent that the student has a general average of "C" 
for all college work transferred. To receive a degree 
from Armstrong College of Savannah, a student must 
complete 30 quarter hours in residence earning a "C" 
average and, in addition, must satisfy the requirements 
of a particular course of study. Adults (students over 21) 
may receive credit for certain college work on the basis 
of the General Educational Development tests (college 
level). Transfer students who have not completed two 
quarters of freshman English will be required to take 
placement tests in English. 

Admission to Class 

Students will be admitted to class when the instructor 
is furnished with an official class card by the Registrar 
indicating that he has paid his fees in the Business Office. 

After the third day of classes, a student can only be 

— 27 — 



admitted to class with permission of the instructor. It 
is understood that the faculty members are fully entitled 
to refuse admission of any student enrolled in the class 
where they feel the student has missed work that he 
would not be able to make up. 

Transcripts of Credit 

Each student is entitled to one official transcript of 
his college work at Armstrong. The charge for addi- 
tional copies is $1.00 each. Requests for transcripts 
should be made in writing on a form provided in the 
registrar's office. Students should allow at least two 
weeks for a transcript to be sent. Supplementary tran- 
scripts are not sent automatically at the end of the 
quarter. These should be requested in the same manner 
as a regular transcript.

Ever upward to the light.

Introduction . . . 

Welcome to Armstrong College! You are now a 
member of that community of higher learning known 
as college and you will share its advantages and meet 
its challenges with your fellow students in the classroom 
and in the many extracurricular associations available 
to you. The faculty and staff of Armstrong are here to 
aid and guide you in your pursuit of an education. 
However, in many ways, it will be necessary for you 
to take advantage of this help on your own initiative 
and it is the purpose of this booklet to introduce you 
to Armstrong, its customs and regulations, so that you 
may make fullest use of its resources from your earliest 
days here. 

Congratulations on your entrance to college and 
best wishes for your continued success here. 

The Dean of Students

THE COLLEGE CAMPUS 

The campus of Armstrong College centers around the 
Armstrong Building at the corner of Bull and Gaston Streets 
which houses the administrative offices of the college. The 
ground floor contains the offices of the president, the comp- 
troller and the department of community services. The offices 
of the academic dean, the registrar and the admissions officer 
are located on the second floor. The office of the dean of 
students is on the third floor of this building. In addition 
several classrooms and faculty offices are found in the Arm- 
strong Building. 

Just west of the Armstrong Building on Gaston Street is 
Jenkins Hall which contains classrooms on the ground floor 
and the college auditorium on the second floor. Adjacent to 
Jenkins Hall is the Lane Building which contains the typing 
lab, the language lab, classrooms and faculty offices. The 
Lane Annex in the rear of this building is the home of Student 
Personnel Services. 

Hodgson Hall, the college library, stands on the corner of 
Whitaker and Gaston Streets facing Forsyth Park. This build- 
ing is also the home of the library of the Georgia Historical 
Society. 

To the north of the Armstrong Building, facing Monterey 
Square, is the Hunt Building which contains classrooms, 
faculty offices and the student lounge. On the street level 
of the Hunt Building is the Student Center and the College 
Bookstore.

Academic Information 

The following academic regulations of the college represent 
a summary of information from the college catalog pertinent 
particularly to your first year at Armstrong. It is not intended 
to be complete and should not be relied on as a final au- 
thority for information affecting your standing in college. If 
in doubt about any detail see the college catalog or the proper 
administrative official of the college. 

ADVISEMENT AND COUNSELING 

A student's first formal contact with the staff and faculty 
of the college (aside from admissions) comes in the advise- 
ment and counseling program. Each student is assigned a 
faculty adviser according to his concentration. This faculty 
member aids the student in planning his college program and 
is available for consultation on any aspect of the student's 
work. 

In addition to this formal advisement, each student is urged 
to consult his instructors on any problems which arise relative 
to particular courses. It is understood that it is the student's 
responsibility to be aware of his standing in class and to act 
to improve this if necessary without warnings or reminders 
from instructors or faculty advisers. 

Finally, Armstrong College offers unique resources for 
special help for the student through the facilities of Student 
Personnel Services. This department administers individual 
educational and vocational aptitude tests for educational and 
career guidance, and also offers individual counseling on any 
problems that affect a student's performance at Armstrong. 

COURSE LOAD AND ATTENDANCE 

The normal course load for a regular student is 16-17 
quarter hours of work, i.e. three five-hour courses plus physical 

(5) 



education. Courses ordinarily carry an amount of quarter hour 
credit equal to the number of times the class meets per week. 
Lab courses and other special courses are exceptions to this 
rule. Permission to register for more than a normal load will 
be given only to students who have a "B" average for the 
previous quarter. For students attending in the evening pro- 
gram 11 quarter hours constitutes a normal course load. 

A student's primary obligation to the college is fulfilled 
when he attends classes regularly. Attendance at all classes 
is therefore expected of a student. Absences from class are 
permitted for the following reasons: 

1. On official college business 

2. Illness (with doctor's certification) 

3. Death in the immediate family 

4. Religious holidays 

In unusual instances the instructor may excuse an absence for 
other serious reasons. A written statement of the excuse for 
an absence must be submitted to the instructor within seven 
days of the absence. The instructor will initial the excuse 
after which it should be filed by the student in the office of 
the registrar. 

Any student whose unexcused absences exceed the number 
of times the class meets per week will be automatically drop- 
ped from class. When a student's absences for any reason 
exceed one-third the number of class meetings per quarter 
he will be dropped from class. Regulations regarding grades 
in such instances may be found in the college catalog. 

WITHDRAWAL 

A student planning to withdraw from school should im- 
mediately make his intention known in writing to the registrar. 
Notification of withdrawal is necessary for honorable dis- 
missal from or readmission to Armstrong College. It is also 
necessary to receive any authorized refunds. Regulations re- 
garding grades in the case of withdrawal may be found in 
the college catalog. 

(6) 



REPORTS, GRADES AND ACADEMIC STANDING 

Quarterly reports of grades are sent to each student. Mid- 
term grades are submitted for each student but a student is 
notified then only if his grade is poor or a failure. 

The following system of grading is employed:

the exception of physical education, in any one quarter will 
be dropped from the college. Any student averaging below 
1.6 honor points per quarter hour for three quarters' work 
will not be permitted to re-register. Further regulations per- 
taining to evening students and the requirements for gradua- 
tion will be found in the college catalog. 

Students dismissed from school for academic reasons who 
feel that extenuating circumstances have affected their per- 
formance, may appeal their dismissal to the Academic Stand- 
ing Committee of the faculty. This appeal should be sub- 
mitted in writing by a date prior to each quarter specified 
by the committee. 

( 7 ) 



HONORS 

Students in attendance for three consecutive quarters taking 
a normal load and averaging a grade of "B" or better with 
no grade below "C" will be placed on the Permanent Dean's 
List which is published yearly. Students taking a normal load 
and making a grade of "B" or better in each course for one 
quarter will be placed on the Dean's Scholastic Attainment 
List published quarterly. Regulations regarding honors for 
graduation and the election of valedictorian may be found in 
the college catalog. 

DISCIPLINE 

Student Conduct. The conduct of students on campus, at 
college sponsored affairs, or when representing the college in 
any capacity must meet accepted standards of adult behavior 
in compliance with the regulations of the faculty and the 
Regents of the University System of Georgia. 

Gambling, hazing, the use of intoxicating beverages, im- 
moral conduct and dishonesty will render the student liable 
to disciplinary action. Students are expected at all times to 
show respect for properly constituted authority. 

The conviction of a student for violation of the law renders 
him subject also to disciplinary action by the college. 

Scholastic Dishonesty. Since scholastic pursuits are funda- 
mental to college life, dishonesty in this area is a most serious 
matter. 

Students should avoid all forms of scholastic dishonesty, 
especially the following: 

Plagiarism. The incorporation into one's own work of pas- 
sages appropriated from another's work without proper 
credit given by means of quotation marks, footnotes, etc. 

Collusion. Working with another student in the prepara- 
tion of reports, themes, etc. without the express permission 
in advance by the instructor. 

(8 ) 



Cheating on an examination. The giving or receiving of 
information or the use of prepared material on an examina- 
tion. 

Disciplinary Procedure. The administration of the college 
regulations on discipline is the responsibility of the Dean of 
Students and the Faculty Disciplinary Committee. 

Students accused of violations of the disciplinary regula- 
tions and/or witnesses to these violations may be called before 
the Faculty Disciplinary Committee. A student refusing to 
obey such a summons or refusing to testify will be liable to 
suspension from the college upon recommendation of the 
committee. 

The following penalties may be imposed for violations of 
these regulations: 

Admonition. The warning that further violations may 
result in more serious punishment. 

Probation. Disciplinary probation is imposed for a specific 
period during which further violations may result in sus- 
pension of the student. 

Suspension of Eligibility for Student Activities. Upon 
recommendation of the committee the student will not 
be permitted to participate in those activities for which 
he is eligible. 

Cancellation of Credit for Scholastic Work. In a case of 
scholastic dishonesty, especially cheating, upon recommen- 
dation of the committee and with the consent of the in- 
structor, a student may be denied credit for work done 
prior to completion of a course. 

Suspension. Suspension is imposed on a student for a 
specific period depending on the nature and seriousness of 
the offense. 

(9 ) 



Expulsion. In the most serious cases the Disciplinary Com- 
mittee has the right to expell a student, resulting in his 
permanent severance from the college. 

ASSEMBLIES 



There are six principal assemblies scheduled during the 
school year. Attendance at these assemblies is required of all 
full-time students (students with twelve hours or more). Other 
assembly programs are scheduled occasionally at which at- 
tendance is voluntary. Notices of official assemblies will be 
posted during the week prior to the program. Required as- 
semblies are scheduled as follows: 

Fall Quarter Opening Convocation 

Installation of Student Officers 

Winter Quarter Educational Convocation 

Student Sponsored Program 

Spring Quarter Educational Convocation 
Honors Day Program 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Each student is entitled to one official transcript of his 
college work without charge. Additional copies will be issued 
at $1.00 each. Application for a transcript may be made in 
the office of the registrar. 

STUDENT IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

Student identification cards are issued to students during 
registration. These cards serve to identify the holder as a 
student of the college and will give him the right to be on the 
college grounds at approved times and will admit him, where 
required, to all college sponsored events. In addition, it will 
serve as proof of his status for issuing of the college annual. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

A number of scholarships are available to Armstrong Col- 
lege. These are awarded generally on the bases of need and 

(10) 



scholastic ability. Scholarships are awarded during the summer 
for the ensuing year and applications for scholarships should 
be made to the Dean of Students by July 15th. Prospective 
new students should have completed application to the college 
before applying for a scholarship. Interviews for scholarships 
are held during the month of August. Each applicant will 
be notified in writing of the date and time for his interview. 

Certain other scholarships, such as the Regents' State 
Scholarship, have somewhat stricter requirements and are 
awarded on a different time schedule. For example, to be 
eligible for a Regents' State Scholarship a student must rank 
scholastically in the upper twenty-five percent of his class. 
Any students interested in this type of scholarship should 
contact the Dean of Students during the spring quarter. 

STUDENT ASSISTANTS 

The college employs a number of student assistants each 
year to work in the library, laboratories, offices and other 
departments. Those interested in such employment should 
apply to the office of the Dean of Students.

II. 

Extracurricular Student Activities 

The educational process in college goes on mainly in the 
classroom and in work associated with it. It is continued, how- 
ever, outside the classroom in the associations with your fellow 
students in pursuits of mutual interest. It is this latter type 
of association that is formalized in the student activity pro- 
gram of the college. 

The organizations of the student activity program at Arm- 
strong reflect the natural variety 7 of interests of a cosmopolitan 
student body and most students will find there something of 
interest to suit their tastes. Indeed for the student who seeks 
a well-rounded education, the activity program offers a 
natural outlet for his extracurricular energies. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The Student Senate is the student governing body of Arm- 
strong College. The primary functions of the Senate are to 
regulate the student activity program and social affairs and 
to budget the money of the student activity fund. 

The principal offices of the Senate are chosen through 
class elections. The sophomore class president is ex officio 
president of the Student Senate and the president of the 
freshman class is ex officio vice-president of the Senate. 
Elections of class officers are held during the fall quarter. 

Members of the Senate are the elected representatives of 
all organizations having membership open to all students. 
The Senate meets bi-monthly. 

STUDENT ACTIVITY FUND 

Each day student taking a normal load is required to pay 
an activity fee of $10.00 per quarter. This money, known 
as the Student Activity Fund, is used to finance the student 
activity program. A yearly budget is drawn up by the Senate 
(in consultation with the Comptroller and Dean of Students) 

(12) 



based on requests from various organizations according to 
general principles established by the Senate. 

Payment of the student activity fee entitles the student 
to free admission to all college sponsored events and to copies 
of the college newspaper. Payment of this fee for three 
quarters entitles the student to a copy of the college annual 
without further charge. 

ELIGIBILITY FOR STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

General Activities. A student is eligible to participate in 
the student activity program who has registered for at least 
ten hours of college work and who has paid the student 
activity fee. Students on scholastic or disciplinary probation 
will not be considered eligible to participate. 

Athletic Activities. To participate in the intercollegiate 
athletic program of the college a student must be registered 
for ten or more hours. Students on scholastic or disciplinary 
probation will not be considered eligible to participate. 

ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND STUDENT 
ACTIVITIES 

A student who receives a grade of "F" at the end of the 
preceding quarter in as much as five quarter hours of work 
will be brought to the attention of the Dean of Students and 
may be ruled ineligible for participation in student activities 
in which they represent the college before the public. 

A student failing to pass as much as ten hours of work 
in the preceding quarter shall be automatically ineligible to 
participate in any activity in which they represent the college 
before the public. 

Activities included in this regulation are: intercollegiate 
athletics, the Masquers, the Glee Club and the Debate Team. 
Other activities of a similar nature may be considered in the 
same category. 

Otherwise, academic deficiency and participation in student 
activities is primarily the concern of the student himself. A 

(13) 



student who has academic deficiencies should employ reason- 
able discretion in the amount of time he chooses to devote 
to extracurricular activities. 

CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS 

The clubs and organizations at Armstrong may be divided 
into several categories: Religious Clubs, Publications, General 
Activities and Sports. 

Religious Clubs provide opportunity for students sharing 
a common faith to meet for discussion, fellowship, religious 
and social activity. These clubs are: 

Baptist Student Union — for students of the Baptist faith 
Canterbury Club — the club for Episcopal students 
Newman Club — for students of the Catholic faith 
Wesley Foundation — the club for Methodist students 
Westminster Fellowship — for students of the Presbyterian 
faith. 

Publications. The two student publications of Armstrong 
College are The Inkwell, the college newspaper, issued four 
times per quarter, and The 'Geechee, the college annual, issued 
in the spring quarter. Both publications are produced entirely 
by the students under the supervision of the dean of students. 
Financed in part by the student activity fund, they are distrib- 
uted free to all regular day students. 

GENERAL ACTIVITIES 

Dance Committee plans and carries out all arrangements 
for the college dances held throughout the school year. 

Debate Forum provides opportunity for those interested 
in debating to participate in a program of intramural and 
intercollegiate debating. 

Glee Club offers the musically inclined student an oppor- 
tunity to meet with others for the purpose of singing fine 
choral music. 

(14) 



The Masquers is the college dramatic club which stages 
three productions per year under professional supervision in 
the completely equipped college theater. 

The Radio Workshop enables students to assist in activities 
connected with radio broadcasting and to gain experience in 
this field. 

Math and Science Club is for those desirous of sharing 
their interest in mathematics and the sciences outside the 
classroom. 

Secretary-Ettes is a club affiliated with the National Sec- 
retary's Association for students of secretarial science. 

Young Democrats is a political organization for students 
with Democratic inclinations. 

Young Republicans is a political organization for students 
with Republican inclinations. 

Sports. Armstrong participates in intercollegiate sports com- 
petition in basketball, golf and tennis. Other sports at the 
college, such as volleyball, touch football, tennis, softball, etc., 
are offered on an intramural basis with competition between 
volunteer intramural teams or between other interested campus 
organizations. 

ACTIVITY SCHEDULE 

The 11:30 period each day is set aside as an activity- 
period. Clubs and organizations meet periodically at this time 
according to a schedule issued quarterly by the office of the 
Dean of Students. 

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES 

There are three principal dances sponsored by the college 
during the school year; the Fall Dance, held in late October, 
the Valentine Dance, in February, and the Spring-Graduation 
Dance held late in the spring quarter. In addition to these, 
the Homecoming Dance, co-sponsored by the Armstrong Alum- 
ni Association, is traditionally held on December 26th. 
Students are admitted free to all of these dances. Occasionally, 
informal dances are given in addition to these. 

(15) 



ORGANIZATIONAL ACTIVITIES 

In addition to the college-wide social affairs the activities 
of individual organizations may include social functions. All 
such functions must be held in accordance with the college 
regulations governing them. These regulations are as follows: 

1. Any organization planning to hold a dance, houseparty 
or other social function should request clearance from the 
office of the Dean of Students at least one week prior to 
such an event. Application for clearance should include 
such information as the type of event, the date, place, 
time and the names of chaperons. 

2. No organization may sponsor a social function without 
approved chaperons. Any club violating this regulation 
will be subject to suspension of its activities by the college. 

3. The conduct of students at social affairs, college sponsored 
events or when representing the college in any capacity, 
must meet the accepted standards of adult behavior. 

4. Any organization condoning misconduct on the part of its 
members or the violation of other college regulations will 
be subject to the suspension of its activities by the college. 

5. Gambling, hazing and the use of alcoholic beverage is 
strictly prohibited at college social affairs or any organiza- 
tional function. 

6. All college social affairs are restricted to Friday and Sat- 
urday evenings except by special permission of the Dean 
of Students. 

MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVITIES 

Homecoming at Armstrong is held late in the fall quarter 
and includes a parade and homecoming basketball game. The 
Homecoming Dance is held during the Christmas holidays. 
The highlight of the dance is the presentation of the Fresh- 
man King and Queen of Homecoming elected by the members 
of their class. 

(16) 



'Geechee Beauty Review is presented in the Winter quarter 
to choose the beauty queen and members of her court for the 
college annual. Sponsors from the various organizations vie 
in this pageant for the coveted titles of queen and court 
member. 

Pioneer Days are held in the spring quarter. Pioneer 
costumes are the usual dress for these spirited times and 
events usually climax at a student sponsored assembly pre- 
sented in the Jenkins Hall auditorium. 

HONORS AND AWARDS 

Alpha Lambda Sigma is the Armstrong Leadership Society. 
Qualifications for membership include outstanding scholastic 
achievement and leadership in student activities. The symbol 
of membership in Alpha Lambda Sigma is the Silver "A" 
which is awarded annually at the Honors Day program during 
the spring quarter. 

Qualification for membership in Alpha Lambda Sigma is 
measured by a point system gauged to award points according 
to the importance of an office held and the nature of the 
activity involved. Activity points are divided into major and 
minor honors commensurate with the particular category of 
activity. Points may be accumulated from one year to the 
next but the award is made only once to a student. It is also 
required that a member have at least a "C" average in order 
to be eligible. 

Requirements for membership are met when the student 
has accumulated at least twenty activity points, including at 
least one major honor, distributed in three or more fields 
among the following: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Publi- 
cations, Sports and General Activity.

Sacred is thy marble height,

TO THE STUDENTS OF 

ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE 

I would like to welcome each of you to Armstrong State 
College. To those of you who are returning and have been 
with us before and to those of you who are coming to us 
for the first time, we extend our greetings. 

One of the most significant occasions in any person's 
life is the time spent on the college campus. This should 
be a period of expanding your social contacts, making new 
friends, developing your mind, and expanding your cultural 
activities. It is our hope that you will have the type of 
experiences here which will do these things and which will 
secure a pleasant place in your memory. 

One of the best ways to enjoy fully your college life 
is to participate in every activity as fully as you can. I 
covet for you a busy and productive life on the Armstrong 
State College campus.

TO ALL NEW STUDENTS: 

Welcome to Armstrong State College! 

As you enter this phase in your educational career, a 
wealth of stimulating and enriching experiences await you. 
The benefits you accrue from these experiences will depend

venture. I sincerely hope that you invest wisely. 

Congratulations on your entrance to college and best

Dean of Student Affairs

HISTORICAL SKETCH 



Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, 
as Armstrong Junior College. The College was originally 
housed in the Armstrong home, a gift from the family of 
George F. Armstrong. Over the years, five additional 
buildings were acquired in the neighborhood of Forsyth 
Park to complete the physical plant. 

On January 1, 1959, the college became a two-year unit 
of the University System of Georgia, and three years later, 
the Mills Bee Lane Foundation purchased a 200-acre site 
on Abercom extension to house a new campus. This new 
campus, with its seven buildings, will be occupied during 
the winter of 1965. 

In 1964, Armstrong State College became a four-year 
institution. The college community during the 1965-66 
school year will consist of approximately 1,200 students 
and 45 faculty members (38% of whom possess the Ph.D. 
degree). The first degrees will be conferred in June, 1968. 



(17) 



I. ACADEMIC INFORMATION 

The following represents a summary of academic in- 
formation provided in the College Catalog. This informa- 
tion is particularly pertinent to your first year at Arm- 
strong State College. It is not intended to be complete and 
should not Joe relied upon as a final authority for informa- 
tion affecting your standing in college. If in doubt, see 
the College Bulletin or the proper administrative official. 

PROGRAMS OF STUDY 

Beginning in June, 1968, Armstrong State College will 
award its first baccalaureate degrees. At that time, the 
degrees of Bachelor of Arts in the fields of history and 
English, Bachelor of Science in the fields of biology and 
chemistry, and Bachelor of Business Administration will 
be conferred upon students completing the requirements 
for these degrees. For students who desire it, the degree 
of Associate in Arts will continue to be conferred (without 
a graduation ceremony) upon completion of all require- 
ments of a two-year program. 

A student planning to receive either the Bachelor's 
degree or the Associate in Arts degree is responsible for 
securing approval for his program from his faculty adviser 
and the Registrar two quarters prior to the expected date 
of graduation. 

Courses are generally numbered according to the 
following pattern: 

100 to 199 Freshman level 

200 to 299 Sophomore level 

300 to 399 Junior level 

400 to 499 Senior level 

ACADEMIC ADVISING 

To assist in planning a program of study, each student 
is assigned to a faculty adviser who teaches in a field 
related to the student's major. Prior to registering for 
each quarter, a student will contact his assigned adviser 

(18) 



and work out a program for the quarter. Courses to be 
taken will be listed on the Class Schedule Card. The ad- 
viser's signature must appear at the bottom of this card 
before a student will be eligible to register. 

Freshmen and transfer students will be assigned faculty 
advisers during a two-day orientation program to be held 
September 13 and 14. It will not be necessary for new 
students to contact faculty advisers prior to the first 
registration since all new students will be advised in group 
sessions on September 15. In succeeding quarters, students 
will be advised in individual sessions. 

Faculty advisers will be assigned through the office of 
the Dean of the College. Students desiring to change 
majors should contact this office for a faculty adviser re- 
assignment. 

At announced times during the quarter, students will 
be encouraged to complete their pre-advisement for the 
next quarter. By completing advisement early, students 
will stand a better chance of getting the classes they desire. 
Remember: THOSE STUDENTS WHO COMPLETE AD- 
VISEMENT FIRST WILL BE FIRST TO REGISTER 
THE NEXT QUARTER. 

COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE 

Qualified counselors are located in the Office of Student 
Personnel to give assistance to students who are experi- 
encing difficulties relating to academic work, personal 
problems, vocational goals, or transition to college. Students 
are encouraged to take advantage of this service whenever 
necessary. 

COURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number 
of quarter hours in which he is enrolled. For example, a 
student enrolled in a 5-hour course would meet this class 
one hour a day, five days a week, for the entire quarter. 
Evening classes and classes with labs would vary slightly 
from this pattern. 

(19) 



The average student load is 16-17 hours per quarter. 
As a general rule, students are expected to spend two hours 
in study for every hour in class. A student taking an 
average load would be expected to devote a minimum of 
48 hours per week to class sessions and to his preparation 
therefor. 

Except in engineering, permission to enroll for more 
than 17 hours must be granted by the Dean of the College. 
Only for students who possess a "B" average the preceding 
quarter and those who, in the quarter just prior to gradu- 
ation, need to take an extra load to graduate, would an 
exception to this policy be made. No student will be 
allowed to register for more than 21 hours in any one 
quarter. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted 
to a maximum of 11 hours unless he has better than a 
"B" average in the last quarter for which grades are 
available. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

No student will be admitted to class until he presents 
to the instructor an official class card indicating that he 
has completed his registration and paid his fees to the 
Business Office. 

Armstrong State students are held responsible for all 
that transpires in their class sessions. Absences from class 
entail a loss to the student and are detrimental to his work. 

NO CUTS are sanctioned. An absence may be excused 
by the instructor if the student is absent 

(1) on official college business 

(2) due to illness (with a doctor's statement) 

(3) because of death in the immediate family 

(4) in observance of religious holidays 

(5) for other serious reasons (absences in this category, 
equal to the number of times a class meets in one 
week, will be allowed without written excuse before 
a student is dropped from class). 

(20) 



Excuses must be submitted within seven (7) days from 
the date the student returns to school; otherwise, the 
absence will not be excused. Any student whose absences 
for any cause exceed one third of the number of times the 
class meets in the quarter will be dropped from the class. 
The student will be given a W or W/F, depending upon 
his academic status at the time he is dropped. 

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student has registered, a change in classes will 
not be made unless some legitimate reason is given. In no 
case will a change be made because a student happens to 
prefer one instructor over another. If changes are neces- 
sary, a student must have the written approval of an 
official in the Student Personnel Office as well as the 
permission of the teacher of the class to which the student 
is transferring. A charge of $2.00 per course will be made 
for any change after registration unless the change is 
initiated by the college. This fee is not refundable and is 
payable to the Business Office. 

DROPPING COURSES 

Students desiring to drop a course after the quarter has 
begun must receive permission from the Dean of Student 
Affairs. In no case should a student simply stop attend- 
ing class. 

WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from 
college must begin the process in the Student Personnel 
Office. A formal withdrawal is required to insure that 
the student is eligible to return to Armstrong State College 
at a future date. Any refund to which a student is entitled 
will be considered from the date which appears on the 
withdrawal form. 

AUDITING COURSES 

A student may audit a course (i.e., receive no credit 
for the course) by obtaining the permission of the in- 

(21) 



structor and the Dean of the College. He must also pay the 
full fees for the course just as if he were to receive credit. 
A student who registers for a course for credit may not 
change to an audit basis after mid-term. 

GRADES 

All grade reports are mailed directly to the student. 
Students will receive both a mid-term and a final report. 

Armstrong State College uses the following system of 
grading: 

Numerical Span Grade Honor Points 

95-100 A 4- 4.5 

90-94 A 4.0 

85-89 B+ 3.5 

80-84 B 3.0 

75-79 C+ 2.5 

70-74 C 2.0 

65-69 D+ 1.5 

60-64 D 1.0 

Below 60 F 

I — Incomplete (must be removed by mid-term of 
next quarter and will be considered F until 
removed) 

W — Withdrew with no grade 

WF — Withdrew failing 

NC — No credit 

A student's quarterly honor point average is computed 
by dividing the number of hours for which he is enrolled 
(attempted hours) into the total honor points received. 
W's are excluded from this computation, but WF's and F's 
are considered. A student's overall average is computed 
by dividing the total hours attempted into the total honor 
points earned while enrolled. 

(22) 



Example :

33 -f- 16 = 2.06 — quarterly honor point average. 

CHANGE OF GRADES 

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar's 
Office, they become final. Students should not request that 
changes be made once they have been officially recorded in 
that office. 

SPECIAL REGULATIONS GOVERNING 
REGISTRATION 

1. The Registrar provides detailed instructions for 
registration. Each student, assisted by his adviser, is 
responsible for completing all forms properly and paying 
all fees on the day of registration. 

2. A student will not be admitted to class without an 
official class admission card. 

3. Six quarters of physical education (one each quarter 
until the requirement has been fulfilled) are required of 
day students who are registered for 10 or more quarter 
hours and /or who are candidates for diplomas or certificates. 
This requirement applies to students on active military 
duty who are enrolled in day school and taking 10 or more 
quarter hours of work. Physical education is not required 
of a student in the evening program, nor of a student 
beyond the age of 25. A student who will become 25 years 
of age during a quarter must register for physical educa- 
tion during that quarter. Each student is expected to 

(23) 



familiarize himself with the physical education regulations 
as listed on pages 33-34 of the College Bulletin. 

4. Once a student is enrolled in a course, he may drop 
or change the course only on the days designated for 
course changes. (See CHANGE OF CLASS and WITH- 
DRAWAL sections of this handbook.) 

5. Students are responsible for keeping an* accurate 
record of courses completed. Additional credit is not 
allowed for repeated courses. If a course is failed and is 
repeated, all hours attempted are counted in the grade 
point average. 

6. A student who does not register during the regular 
registration period will be charged a late registration fee. 
No student will be permitted to register after the last day 
scheduled for late registration. 

7. On registration day, students who have not been 
pre-advised should contact their adviser prior to proceed- 
ing with registration. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Students are placed on academic probation when their 
work falls below accepted standards. 

At stated intervals throughout a student's educational 
progress, he is expected to have achieved a certain overall 
grade point average on all work attempted at Armstrong 
State College. If he fails to achieve this average, he is 
placed on academic probation for two quarters. The re- 
quirements as stipulated in the College Bulletin are as 
follows : 

At the completion of: Minimum required grade 

point average: 

45 quarter hours attempted :_■ 1.6 

90 quarter hours attempted 1.8 

135 quarter hours attempted 1.9 

190 quarter hours attempted 2.0 

A student must maintain a 2.0 ("C") average on course 
work attempted during any quarter in which he is enrolled 

(24) 



on academic probation. Failure to do so will result in dis- 
missal for two quarters. If a student has been placed on 
academic probation and he maintains a 2.0 average for two 
successive quarters he will no longer be considered on 
probation. 

Any student re-entering the college after academic dis- 
missal will be placed on academic probation for two suc- 
cessive quarters. He must maintain an overall 2.0 average 
on all work attempted during these two quarters to be 
eligible to remain in school. 

At the completion of each block of hours as given above 
(45, 90, 135) a student again becomes subject to academic 
probation provided he fails to meet the prescribed minimum 
grade point average. 

A full-time student (one who enrolls for 12 or more 
quarter hours) who fails to pass at least one course other 
than physical education in any quarter will be dismissed 
from the college for two quarters. A part-time student 
(one who enrolls for less than 12 quarter hours) who fails 
to pass at least one course other than physical education 
in two successive quarters will be dismissed from college 
for two quarters. A third dismissal for failure to meet the 
academic standards of the college shall in all cases be final. 

The Summer Quarter will be considered a normal 
quarter for the above regulations. Any student dismissed 
for academic reasons may appeal to the Committee on 
Academic Standing. Consideration will be given if there 
are extenuating circumstances. For more information re- 
garding appeals see the College Bulletin, page 37. 

LIBRARY 

The library of Armstrong State College is dedicated 
to a philosophy that service to students and faculty is its 
first responsibility. Librarians give a higher priority to 
helping patrons than to any other aspect of library service. 

Location. The library is housed in Hodgson Hall, on 
the corner of Whitaker and Gaston Streets until such time 
as the facilities at the new campus are occupied. 

(25) 



Hours. The library is open from 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 
P,M. Monday through Thursday. On Friday it is open from 
8:00A.M. until 5:00 P.M. and from 10:00 A.M. until 1:00 
P.M. on Saturday. The library is closed on New Year's 
Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Friday and 
Saturday after, and on Christmas Day. Other variations 
or changes, including Summer Quarter Session will be 
posted in the foyer of the library. 

Resources. The collection numbers more than 17,000 
volumes, with additional unbound pamphlets and govern- 
ment documents. The library subscribes to 235 periodicals, 
14 periodical and bibliographical indexes, and eight news- 
papers. The collection also includes approximately 500 
phonograph records and 75 tapes which are available for 
circulation. 

Circulation policies: 

1. The I.D. card which is issued at time of registration 
also serves as your Library Card. It is necessary 
that you present this card each time you wish to 
check out any materials. 

2. Reference books and periodicals (whether bound or 
unbound) can be used only within the library. 

3. Regular books circulate for two weeks. Unless 
another borrower is waiting for a book, it may be 
renewed twice. Books may not be renewed unless 
brought to the circulation desk. A student is per- 
mitted a maximum of five books at one time. 

4. Reserve books, which are so designated by faculty 
members, are kept behind the circulation desk. Re- 
serve books are circulated according to the time 
designated by the instructors. 

Fines. For regular books the overdue fine for late re- 
turns is two cents a day for each day the library is open. 
The fine for reserve books is twenty-five cents a day. 
Overnight reserve books carry a fine of twenty-five cents 
for the first hour and ten cents for each additional hour 

CM) 



V 



overdue up to the maximum of one dollar per day for 
each item. The fine for recordings, tapes, and pamphlets 
is five cents per day. 

Borrowers who lose books or other library material will 
be charged the price of the item plus 20% of the value 
to cover the cost of correcting the records and processing 
a replacement copy. If the book is found within one year, 
the price of the book will be refunded, but not the service 
charge. If a student should lose a book, he should report 
this fact immediately so that excessive fines do not ac- 
cumulate. 

Students who owe fines to the library or who have over- 
due books will not be permitted to register for the next 
quarter or to have transcripts of records issued until their 
accounts have been cleared. 

Discipline. The library is maintained primarily for 
patrons who wish to consult its resources. Only secondarily 
does it exist as a quiet place for students who wish to use 
their own books and materials. Although the library on 
the new campus will provide facilities for group study, 
the present library does not lend itself to this type of 
gathering. Therefore, students who desire to study together 
should do so in the student center or in vacant classrooms. 

Students will find that they can better accomplish their 
work in keeping with the serious purpose of the library if 
they do not sit with friends or acquaintances while working 
there. The library staff ca nnot p ermit talking, nor can it 
grimly patrol the reading" a reas to enforce quiet. Students* 
who disregard the regulations on talking will be sent out 
of the library^a noT Will not be re-admitted without ^Efte~~ap-

HONOR SYSTEM 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College provides 
all members of the student body with an opportunity to 
participate in self government. The accompanying respon- 
sibilities are outlined below. 

(27) 



The Honor System, written by a joint committee of 
faculty and students, received an overwhelming endorse- 
ment by both faculty and students during the Winter 
Quarter, 1965. 

The ordinances of the Honor System are as follows: 

I. All students must agree to abide by the rules and 
regulations of the Honor System. A student will not be 
accepted at Armstrong State College unless he signs the 
following statement at the time of his first registration: 

"I have read the regulations governing the Honor 
System at Armstrong State College, and I understand 
that as a student at Armstrong, I must comply with 
all of these requirements. " 

This statement and all rules and regulations governing 
the Honor System will be printed in the official bulletin 
and the Student Handbook. The Statement will also be 
printed on the application form for admission to be signed 
by the student before admission to the college. 

It will be the responsibility of the Honor Council to 
conduct an extensive orientation program at the beginning 
of each quarter for all newly entering students to explain 
fully the requirements of the Honor System and to allow 
full discussion of these regulations. 

II. The following will be considered violations of the 
Honor Code: 

(1) Academic dishonesty of any kind (giving or re- 
ceiving any unauthorized help on any assignment, 
test or paper. At the beginning of each quarter it 
shall be the responsibility of each teacher to make 
clear what shall be considered unauthorized help 
in his course). 

(2) Stealing only when related to cheating. 

(3) Lying before the Honor Council. 

(4) Failure to report a known offense. 

(Lying or stealing in any other cases will be con- 
sidered disciplinary, not Honor, matters.) 

(28) 



III. Ways of reporting a violation of the Honor Code: 

(1) Self -reporting- A student who has broken the 
Honor Code should report himself to a member of 
the Honor Council. 

(2) Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware 
of a violation of the Honor Code must report the 
matter. This may be done in one of two ways: 

a) He may tell the person thought to be guilty to 
report himself to a member of the Honor Council 
no later than the end of the next school day. 
After this designated time the person who is 
aware of the violation must inform a member 
of the Honor Council so that the Honor Council 
may contact the accused person if he has not 
already reported himself. 

b) He may report the suspected violation directly 
to a member of the Honor Council without in- 
forming the accused. 

IV. The Honor Council will be composed of eleven 
students : 

(1) A president, who must be a member of the senior 
class, to be elected by the entire student body. 

(2) A vice-president, a senior, elected as above. 

(3) A secretary, who must be a junior, elected as above. 

(4) Two representatives each from the freshman, sopho- 
more, junior, and senior classes, elected by the 
members of their respective classes. 

The election of officers will be held in the Spring 
Quarter. The election of class representatives will be held 
in the Fall Quarter. During Summer School, any member 
of the previous year's Honor Council who is attending 
summer classes will continue on the Honor Council for the 
summer. These along with the three officers elected in the 
previous Spring Quarter will appoint other students in 
Summer School to fill the remaining vacancies. Any officer 

(29) 



not present in the Summer School will be temporarily re- 
placed by appointment of the Summer School Honor 

Council. 

Qualifications for membership — All officers and repre- 
sentatives (except freshmen) must have an overall average 
of "C" or better for all work at Armstrong. Freshmen 
representatives must have an overall average of "C" or 
better from high school work. 

Any student not in good standing with the college in 
academic or disciplinary matters is ineligible to serve on 
the Honor Council. 

Any member of the Honor Council who falls below these 
requirements during his term of office will be replaced 
by his next runner-up from the previous election. 

The Honor Council will be responsible for its own 
bylaws. 

V. Until there are four classes at Armstrong:, the 
following students will compose the Honor Council: 

For 1964-65 and 1965-66 school years: 

The president and vice-president must be upper 
classmen, elected by the entire student body. 

The secretary must be a freshman, elected by the 
entire student body. 

There will be four representatives from each of the 
two classes elected by their respective classes. 

For 1966-67 school year: 

The president and vice-president must be juniors, 
elected by the entire student body. 

The secretary must be a sophomore, elected by the 
entire student body. 

There will be two junior, three sophomore, and three 
freshman representatives, elected by each respective 
class. 

(30) 



VI. Honor Council procedure for examining a reported 
violation: 

(1) It is recommended that an Honor Council meeting: 
be called by the president to examine a reported 
violation as soon as possible after such a report. 

(2) At the meeting the Honor Council will hear the 
accusation, the testimony of any witnesses, and 
any defense the accused may wish to present. 

(3) The accused will have the right to hear all witnesses 
and all evidence brought before the Honor Council. 

(4) The accused will be considered innocent until proved 
guilty. 

(5) Nine members of the Honor Council will constitute 
a quorum. 

(6) The secretary will keep minutes of all meetings and 
all official testimony will be tape recorded. 

(7) A vote of two-thirds majority of the members of 
the Honor Council present and voting will be neces- 
sary for the conviction of the accused. 

(8) The vote will be taken by secret ballot. 

VII. If the accused is found innocent by vote of the 
Honor Council, the case will be closed; and all records 
pertaining to this case will be destroyed; and no further 
action will be taken. 

If a person is found guilty, the Honor Council will 
recommend to the President of Armstrong State College: 

(1) Suspension from school for any number of quarters 
(the minimum suspension will be for the remainder 
of the quarter in which the violation occurs). 

(2) Expulsion from school. 

(31) 



All decisions of the Honor Council will be made as 
recommendations to the President of Armstrong State Col- 
lege, who will decide on the action to be taken. After the 
President of the College has decided on his course of 
action, he will inform the accused person of this decision 
in writing, and the President will post an official notice on 
the bulletin boards announcing his action without mention- 
ing the name of the accused. 

VIII. Although the College feels that the above two 
recommendations are appropriate for academic dishonesty, 
it also recognizes that unique circumstances may arise. 
For such cases a series of appeals is open to the convicted 
student. He may appeal either the conviction or the 
punishment or both in the following ways: 

(1) To the President of Armstrong State College in a 
letter. 

(2) The President's decision may be appealed to the 
Chancellor of the University System of Georgia 
in a letter. 

(3) The Chancellor's decision may be appealed to the 
Board of Regents of the University System of 
Georgia in a letter. 

IX. Each student will be required to write on every 
written assignment, test, or paper a pledge that he has 
neither given nor received any unauthorized help on this 
work. This may be done by writing the word "Pledged" 
followed by the student's signature. 

X. A revision of the Honor System will require a 
majority vote of the faculty and of the student body.

BULLETIN BOARDS 

In order to disseminate information to students, the 
college has placed three official Bulletin Boards in strategic 
locations on campus. Students are expected to check these 
bulletin boards at least twice a week for announcements 
and general information. No announcement may be placed 
on official Bulletin Boards without the specific approval 
of an official in the Student Personnel Office. Students 
are responsible for all announcements posted for a period 
of at least 24 hours. 



(33) 



FINANCIAL AID 

All forms of financial aid are administered through the 
Student Personnel Office. Students interested in scholar- 
ships, assistanceships, loans, part-time employment, or 
work- study opportunities should make application in this 
office. Every effort will be made to assist students who 
desire an education but who do not have sufficient resources 
to attend college. 

MAROON AND GOLD 

To keep students informed regarding school functions, 
the College publishes a news bulletin, the Maroon and Gold, 
every Tuesday. This one-page bulletin contains announce- 
ments and general information relative to college and 
student activities. Students are expected to read the 
Maroon and Gold weekly and will be held responsible for 
all information contained therein. 

STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE 

The student activity fee of $10.00 per quarter for day 
students and $1.00 per quarter for evening and special 
students is used to finance the student activity program. 
Payment of the fee entitles the student to free admission 
to all College-sponsored events and to copies of the College 
newspaper. Payment of this fee for three quarters entitles 
the student to a copy of the College annual. 

Disposition of student activity funds is handled by the 
Student Government (in consultation with the Dean of 
Student Affairs and the Comptroller) based on requests 
from various organizations. 

FREE TIME 

Classes do not meet from 12:30 to 1:30. This period is 
set aside each day as an activity and lunch period. Clubs 
and organizations meet periodically at this time accord- 
ing to a schedule issued by the Director of Student Ac- 
tivities. Convocations are also scheduled during this period. 

CONVOCATIONS 

There are six principal convocations scheduled during 
the school year. Attendance is required of a full-time 

(34) 



student (students who are enrolled for 12 hours or more). 
Other programs are scheduled occasionally at which attend- 
ance is voluntary. Notices of convocations will be posted 
on the Official Bulletin Boards during the week prior to 
the program. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Each student is entitled to one official transcript of his 
college work without charge. Additional copies will be 
issued at $1.00 each. Application for transcripts may be 
made in the office of the Registrar. 

ID CARDS 

Student identification cards are issued during fall regis- 
tration. Cards are laminated and contain pertinent informa- 
tion about the student. They must be presented and 
punched at each registration to become valid. These cards 
serve to identify the holder as a student of the college and 
will give him the right to be on the college campus at ap- 
proved times and will admit him, where required, to all 
college sponsored events. In addition, cards will serve as 
proof of his status for issuing of the college annual and 
for checking books out of the library. 

STUDENT ASSISTANTS 

The College employs a number of student assistants 
each year to work in the library, laboratories, offices and 
other departments. Those interested in such employment 
should apply to the Student Personnel Office. 

STUDENT INSURANCE 

For a nominal fee, students may purchase group health 
and accident insurance. For detailed information concern- 
ing coverage, contact the Student Personnel Office. 

ACCIDENTS 

In case of accident, injury, or sickness involving stu- 
dents, the Student Personnel Office should be notified 
immediately. An attempt should be made to prevent crowds 
from forming and to make the injured person as comfort- 
able as possible until a college official arrives on the scene. 

(35) 



LECTURE AND CONCERT SERIES 

During the school year, a number of lectures and con- 
certs by outstanding authorities and artists are provided 
by the College. These programs are designed to assist in 
the development of the College community. All students 
are urged to attend. 

ORIENTATION PROGRAM 

To assist students in making the transition from high 
school to college and to acquaint them with school policies, 
traditions, and procedures, a program of orientation is 
scheduled for all entering freshmen and transfer students. 
Attendance at this two-day program is mandatory. 

STUDENT PERSONNEL OFFICE 

This office houses the Dean of Student Affairs, the 
Director of Student Activities, Financial Aids Officer, and 
Counselors. These individuals are available to assist stu- 
dents in whatever way their services may be required. 

REFUNDS OF FEES 

Refunds of fees will be made only upon written ap- 
plication for withdrawal from school obtained in the Student 
Personnel Office. No refund will be made to students who 
drop a course. See page 29 of the College Bulletin for 
further information. 

LOST AND FOUND 

The Student Personnel Office maintains a Lost and 
Found. Any person finding lost articles on campus should 
turn them in to this office so they may be claimed by their 
rightful owner. 

STUDENT CENTER 

The Student Center is housed in the Hunt Building: and 
is open throughout the day. During school hours, short 
orders and light lunches may be purchased at reasonable 
prices. The Center also provides recreational facilities and 
houses the book store. 

(36) 



On the new campus, the Student Center will include a 
cafeteria where two meals a day will be served. 

TELEPHONE CALLS 

Students are called to the telephone only in emergencies. 
Office telephones are not to be used by students. Should it 
become necessary to make a call, use one of the public 
telephones provided. 

ETIQUETTE 

Certain easy and obvious procedures that denote a 
person of poise and culture often slip an active mind. The 
following" may refresh your memory: 

A. Meeting People — 

1. The older or more distinguished person is named 
first, and the woman is named before the man. 

2. Formal situations call for "May I present ?" 

or "May I introduce ?", et cetera. 

3. Informal situations call for "This is ," "Have 

you met ?", or "Do you know ?", 

et cetera. 

4. Respond to all introductions in a simple and 
genuine manner. When attending a dance or other 
social function, make it a point to speak with the 
chaperones. 

B. Smoking Etiquette — 

Smoking should be done only in areas set aside for 
that purpose — never on the dance floor. You should 
never smoke unless invited to do so in a professor's 
office or any other office. Remember, city and state 
fire laws prohibit smoking in public auditoriums and 
theaters. Obey NO SMOKING signs in classrooms and 
other campus areas. Never smoke at a dining table 
while others are eating and never use food dishes for 
ash trays. An ASC coed never smokes on the street 
or while crossing the campus. 

(37) 



C. Concerts and Lectures — 

1. Always show consideration for the artist and 
audience by arriving sufficiently early to be seated 
before the program begins and by leaving only at 
intermission or at the close of the program. Under 
no conditions should you enter the auditorium until 
the performer completes a number. It is incon- 
siderate to talk or rattle programs during a per- 
formance. It is proper for the audience to rise 
when a prominent person comes before or is pre- 
sented to the audience. 

2. At concerts, applause is held even after a solo until 
the conductor, by turning on the podium toward the 
audience, indicates that the selection is over. The 
conductor's appearance from the wings is applauded, 
but house becomes quiet when he turnes toward 
th orchestra. 

D. Social Correspondence — 

1. When you receive a personal invitation to an oc- 
casion such as a breakfast, luncheon, dinner, a small 
tea, or a wedding, followed by a reception, you 
should always reply. However, a reply is not re- 
quired when the invitation is for a large tea or 
reception unless the invitation carries an R.S.V.P. 

2. If invited to a small informal social activity, you 
may respond by telephone. For formal parties, you 
respond in longhand, repeating the form of the in- 
vitation, writing in blue or black ink on plain white 
paper. All formal invitations and responses are 
written in the third person. 

3. "Thank you" notes are proper for any situation 
where you might express your appreciation. These 
may be "bread and butter" notes to a hostess in 
whose home you have stayed. Thank you notes 
should be written for gifts, favors, and also to those 
persons who have chaperoned your parties. 

(38) 



E. Miscellaneous — 

1. Women appreciate an opened door or a seat on a 
bus. In return, men like to be thanked for such 
little courtesies. A younger woman extends these 
same courtesies to an older woman. 

2. A man precedes a woman off buses and out of cars. 
If there is no usher, he precedes her down the aisle 
of a theater, church, or auditorium. In a restaurant, 
if there is no waiter, the man leads the way to the 
table. Remember, when dining out with a gentle- 
man, he relays the woman's order to the waiter. 
Before ordering, consideration should be shown for 
your date's suggestion for the meal. This little 
understanding on your part will be greatly ap- 
preciated. 

3. It is in poor taste for women to apply make-up or 
to comb their hair in public. 

4. You appreciate a clear, pleasant voice, cheerfulness, 
and politeness from the other end of the telephone 
line. Be sure to extend these same courtesies from 
your end of the line. Remember, it is inconsiderate 
to talk for an unnecessarily long time. 

5. People appreciate and expect privacy. Such privacy 
includes never touching another's mail, never 
borrowing without permission, and always knock- 
ing before entering a room.

III. STUDENT REGULATIONS 



SMOKING AND EATING 

Smoking and eating are prohibited in all classrooms of 
Armstrong State College. Students may smoke in the 
halls and outside the buildings and in all parts of the 
Student Center. 

STUDENT CONDUCT 

The conduct of students on campus, at college spon- 
sored affairs or when representing the College in any 
capacity, must meet accepted standards of adult behavior 
in compliance with the regulations of Armstrong State 
College and the Regents of the University System of 
Georgia. 

Gambling, hazing, the use of intoxicating beverages, 
immoral conduct, and dishonesty will render the student 
liable to disciplinary action. Students are expected at all 
times to show respect for properly constituted authority. 

The conviction of a student for violation of the law 
renders him subject also to disciplinary action by the 
College. 

DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURE 

Administering college regulations regarding discipline 
is the responsibility of the Dean of Student Affairs. A 
Faculty Discipline Committee is available to assist, when 
necessary, in the administration of these policies and to 
hear appeals from students against whom disciplinary 
action has been taken. 

Students accused of violations of the disciplinary regu- 
lations and /or witnesses to these violations may be called 
before the Dean of Student Affairs and /or the Faculty 
Disciplinary Committee. A student refusing to obey such 
a summons or refusing to testify will be liable to suspension 
from the College upon appropriate recommendations. 

(40) 



The following" penalties may be imposed for violation of 
these regulations: 

1. Probation — The withholding of privileges for a 
specified period of time. Further violations during 
the probationary period may result in suspension of 
the student. 

2. Suspension — The exclusion of the student from the 
College for a specified period of time after which 
readmission is possible. 

3. Expulsion — The permanent separation of the stu- 
dent from the college with no chance for read- 
mission. 

Students who have been suspended for disciplinary rea- 
sons may be automatically reinstated at the end of the 
specified period of suspension. Such students must notify 
the Registrar in writing of their intention to return at least 
thirty (30) days prior to the date of their reinstatement. 
The readmission of any student who has been suspended 
for disciplinary reasons must be approved by the Dean of 
Student Affairs. 

SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY 

Since scholastic pursuits are fundamental to college 
life, dishonesty in this area is a most serious matter. 

All cases involving scholastic dishonesty will be handled 
by the Student Honor Court. For further information re- 
garding violations and the related disciplinary procedure, 
see Section I of this handbook. 

ELIGIBILITY FOR STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

General Activities — A student is eligible to participate 
in the student activity program if he has registered for at 
least ten hours of college work and has paid the student 
activity fee. Students on scholastic or disciplinary pro- 
bation will not be considered eligible to participate. 

Athletic Activities — To participate in the inter- 
collegiate athletic program of the college a student must 

(41) 



be registered for ten or more hours. Students on scholastic 
or disciplinary probation will not be considered eligible to 
participate. 

A student who received a grade of "F" at the end of 
the preceding quarter in as much as five quarter hours 
of work will be brought to the attention of the Dean of 
Student Affairs and may be ruled ineligible for partici- 
pation in student activities in which they represent the 
college before the public. 

A student failing to pass as much as ten hours of 
work in the preceding quarter shall be automatically in- 
eligible to participate in any activity in which they 
represent the college before the public. 

Activities included in this regulation are: intercollegiate 
athletics, the Masquers, the Glee Club, and the Debate 
Team. Other activities of a similar nature may be con- 
sidered in the same category. 

Otherwise, academic deficiency and participation in 
student activities is primarily the concern of the student 
himself. A student who has academic deficiences should 
employ reasonable discretion in the amount of time he 
chooses to devote to extracurricular activities. 



CONVOCATIONS 

Attendance is required of all full-time students at 
scheduled convocations. Attendance will be checked. 

PARKING REGULATIONS 

Beginning in the Winter Quarter decals will be re- 
quired on all automobiles driven on campus by Armstrong 
State College students. Decals will be distributed during 
registration. Automobiles that are parked in assigned 
places will be given traffic tickets. 

(42)

downtown section of Savannah, street dress is appropriate. 
Abbreviated clothing is not considered to be appropriate

ception to this rule will be those cases specificially 
authorized by the President of Armstrong State

IV. STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 
AND ACTIVITIES 

GENERAL 

Student organizations at Armstrong State College exist 
as an integral part of the total educational program. They 
have as their purpose to contribute to the social welfare 
of the students as well as the entire college community. 
Student organizations are organized and managed by stu- 
dents and are subject to the control and direction of their 
membership as well as to the control of the college. As an 
integral part of the college community, they have certain 
responsibilities, namely, effective achievement of the organ- 
ization's announced purposes, appropriate social and com- 
munity relations, and sound business management. The 
recognition of student organizations at Armstrong State 
College is more than an act by the College. It is a rela- 
tionship in which the College accepts the responsibility for 
providing certain facilities, resources, and services while 
the student organization accepts the responsibility for its 
own conduct. Accepted standard of good taste shall be 
observed in the social conduct of such groups. Efficiency 
and ^ integrity shall be maintained in their business affairs. 
Basic democratic operational procedures are expected of 
all student organizations. 

Student organizations at Armstrong State College re- 
flect the natural variety of interests found in a diversified 
student body. Individuals who seek a well-rounded edu- 
cation will avail themselves of the varied opportunities 
afforded through the college program of student activities. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The student government of Armstrong State College is 
recognized as the official student body government and 
shall serve to express the will of the general student body. 
The College relies heavily upon this group in seeking the 
opinions and assistance of the general student body on 
matters of concern to the student's welfare. 

(45) 



To the Student Government is delegated many responsi- 
bilities. Chief among these is acting upon the budgeting 
of the Student Activity Fund revenues. Such action is 
subject to the approval of the Dean of Student Affairs. 
The Student Government is also delegated the responsi- 
bility of acting upon requests for recognition made by 
prospective student organizations. The decision of the 
Student Government regarding such groups is submitted 
to the faculty, through the Faculty Council, for its ap- 
proval. 

To enable the student government of Armstrong State 
College to function more effectively, certain revisions in 
the student body constitution were necessary with the 
change of the college to four-year status. In the spring 
of 1965 a constitution committee was appointed by the 
President of the Student Body to draft a new constitution. 
This committee functioned until the end of the Spring 
Quarter at which time the Dean of Student Affairs, in the 
absence of any official student representative, appointed 
additional members to this committee and asked that a 
final draft of the constitution be presented by August. 

Printed below is the proposed constitution which this 
committee drafted and is presenting for student approval. 
A vote regarding the constitution will be held the early 
part of the Fall Quarter.

HISTORICAL SKETCH 



Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, 
as Armstrong Junior College. The College was originally 
housed in the Armstrong home, a gift from the family of 
George F. Armstrong. Over the years, five additional 
buildings were acquired in the neighborhood of Forsyth 
Park to complete the physical plant. 

On January 1, 1959, the college became a two-year unit 
of the University System of Georgia, and three years later, 
the Mills Bee Lane Foundation purchased a 200-acre site 
on Abercom extension to house a new campus. This new 
campus, with its seven buildings, was first occupied during 
the winter of 1965. 

In 1964, Armstrong State College became a four-year 
institution. The college community during the 1966-67 
school year will consist of approximately 1,800 students 
and 60 faculty members, 35 per cent of whom possess the 
Ph.D degree. The first degrees will be conferred in June, 
1968.

GREETINGS 

from the 

STUDENT BODY 

PRESIDENT 



FELLOW STUDENTS: 

Welcome to the student body of Armstrong State Col- 
lege. It is our desire that you find here a genuinely chal- 
lenging and worthwhile educational experience. 

You, as a student in a new and growing institution, 
have a rather unique opportunity. You have the oppor- 
tunity to assist in the development of a college. The 
future of Armstrong State College depends to a great 
extent on the contributions you make to the college com- 
munity. 

Only by actively participating in the programs of the 
college can you really feel a part of the college. I hope 
you will take advantage of as many of the available op- 
portunities as possible. 

Sincerely, 

JIM WEEKS 

Student Body President

I. ACADEMIC INFORMATION 



The following represents a summary of academic in- 
formation provided in the College Catalog. This informa- 
tion is particularly pertinent to your first year at Arm- 
strong State College. It is not intended to be complete and 
should not be relied upon as a final authority for informa- 
tion affecting your standing in college. If in doubt, see 
the College Bulletin or the proper administrative official. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 

At present the following degrees and majors are of- 
fered at Armstrong State College: 

Bachelor of Arts Degree with majors in history, Eng- 
lish and music; 

Bachelor of Science Degree with majors in biology, 
chemistry and mathematics; 

Bachelor of Business Administration with majors in 
accounting, management and economics; 

(Each of these degrees may be taken with an educa- 
tion program leading to certification for secondary school 
teachers.) 

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education; 

Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology; 

Two-year Nursing Program. 



ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

Students who are in need of academic advisement and 
who have decided on a major should consult the head of 
the department in which they plan to concentrate. 

(19) 



COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE 

Qualified counselors are located in the Office of Student 
Personnel to give assistance to students who are experi- 
encing difficulties relating to academic work, personal 
problems, vocational goals, or transition to college. Students 
are encouraged to take advantage of this service whenever 
necessary. 

COURSE LOAD 



A student's course load is determined by the number 
of quarter hours in which he is enrolled. For example, a 
student enrolled in a 5-hour course would meet this class 
one hour a day, five days a week, for the entire quarter. 
Evening classes and classes with labs would vary slightly 
from this pattern. 

The average student load is 16-17 hours per quarter. 
As a general rule, students are expected to spend two hours 
in study for every hour in class. A student taking an 
average load would be expected to devote a minimum of 
48 hours per week to class sessions and to his preparation 
therefor. 



Except in engineering, permission to enroll for more 
than 17 hours must be granted by the Dean of the College. 
Only for students who possess a "B" average the preceding 
quarter and those who, in the quarter just prior to gradu- 
ation, need to take an extra load to graduate, would an 
exception to this policy be made. No student will be 
allowed to register for more than 21 hours in any one 
quarter. 



A student who is employed full-time will be restricted 
to a maximum of 11 hours unless he has better than a 
"B" average in the last quarter for which grades are 
available. 

(20) 




Students enjoy the luau held during the summer 
quarter 



CLASS ATTENDANCE 



The control of student attendance at class meetings and 
the effect of a student's attendance on his grades in a 
course is left entirely to the discretion of the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is 
announced, discussed, or lectured upon in class as well as 
for mastering all assigned reading; he is also responsible 
for turning in on time all assignments and tests, including 
recitation and unannounced quizzes. The best way to meet 
these responsibilities is to attend classes regularly. An 
instructor may drop a student from any class with a grade 
of "WF" if he thinks that excessive absence prevents 
that student from satisfactorily fulfilling his responsibili- 
ties. If such excessive absence is the result of prolonged 
illness, death in the family, college business, or religious 

(21) 



holidays, the withdrawal grade will be either "W" or 
"WF" depending on the student's status at the time he 
was dropped. Each instructor will be responsible for in- 
forming his classes on their meeting what constitutes 
excessive absence in the particular class. Each student is 
responsible for knowing the attendance regulation in his 
class and for complying with it. 

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student has registered, a change in classes will 
not be made unless some legitimate reason is given. In no 
case will a change be made because a student happens to 
prefer one instructor over another. If changes are neces- 
sary, a student must have the written approval of an 
official in the Student Personnel Office. A charge of $2 
per course will be made for any change after registration 
unless the change is initiated by the college. This fee is 
not refundable and is payable to the Business Office. 

DROPPING COURSES 

Students desiring to drop a course after the quarter has 
begun must obtain a Drop-Add Notice in the Student Per- 
sonnel Office. The notice must be signed by the professor 
of the course being dropped. 

A student dropping a course not more than seven school 
days after the class begins will automatically receive a 
"W" upon withdrawing from the course. 

After seven days the grade received will depend on the 
student's status in class at the time of withdrawal. 

WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from 
college must begin the process in the Student Personnel 
Office. A formal withdrawal is required to insure that 
the student is eligible to return to Armstrong State College 
at a future date. Any refund to which a student is entitled 
will be considered from the date which appears on the 
withdrawal form. 

(22) 



AUDITING COURSES 

Persons who apply to audit courses will not be required 
to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test, but must meet all 
other requirements for admission and pay all regular fees. 

A special form for permission to audit courses may be 
obtained from the Admissions Office. 

Students enrolled on a full-time, credit basis and desir- 
ing to change from credit status to audit status must have 
the permission of the instructor. No change of this nature 
may be made after the seventh class meeting. 



GRADES 

All grade reports are mailed directly to the student. 
Students doing unsatisfactory work (D-F) will receive a 
a mid-term report. 

Armstrong State College uses the following system of 
grading: 



Numerical Span

Honor Points

90-94

I — Incomplete (must be removed by mid-term of 
succeeding quarter or will automatically be- 
come an "F"). 
W — Withdrew with no grade 
WF— Withdrew Failing 
NC— No credit 

(23) 



A :-tudent's quarterly honor point average is computed 
by dividing the number of hours for which he is enrolled 
(attempted hours) into the total honor points received. 
W's are excluded from this computation, but WF's and F's 
are considered. A students overall average is computed 
by dividing the total hours attempted into the total honor 
points earned while enrolled. 

Example: 
Courses for Honor Pts. 

Quarter Hours Final Grade Earned 

Eng. 101 5 C (2.0) 10.00(5x2.0) 

Hist. 114 5 B (3.0) 15.00 (5 x 3.0) 

Math 101 5 D (1.0) 5.00(5x1.0) 

P. E. Ill 1 B (3.0) 3.00(1x3.0) 



Total 16 Total ___. 33.00 

33 -r- 16 = 2.06 — quarterly honor point average. 

CHANGE OF GRADES 

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar's 
Office, they become final. Students should not request that 
changes be made once they have been officially recorded in 
that office. 

SPECIAL REGULATIONS GOVERNING 
REGISTRATION 

1. The Registrar provides detailed instructions for 
registration. Each student, assisted by his adviser, is 
responsible for completing all forms properly and paying 
all fees on the day of registration. 

2. All students who are enrolled for ten quarter hours 
or more on the day schedule and who are candidates for 
degrees are required to take six physical education courses, 
one in each quarter of the freshman and sophomore years 
with the sequence of 11, 112, 113 in the freshman year. 

(24) 



The department requires all students to make up ex- 
cused absences; unexcused absences lower the final grade. 

Physical education is not required of anyone beyond the 
age of 25, or of anyone enrolled primarily in evening 
classes. 

3. Once a student is enrolled in a course, he may drop 
or change the course only on the days designated for 
course changes. (See CHANGE OF CLASS and WITH- 
DRAWAL sections of this handbook.) 

4. Students are responsible for keeping an accurate 
record of courses completed. Additional credit is not al- 
lowed for repeated courses. If a course is failed and is 
repeated, all hours attempted are counted in the grade 
point average. 

5. A student who does not register during the regular 
registration period will be charged a late registration fee. 
No student will be permitted to register after the last day 
scheduled for late registration. 

6. On registration day, students who have not been 
pre-advised should contact one of the available advisers 
prior to proceeding with registration. 

Courses are generally numbered according to the 
following pattern: 

100 to 199 Freshman level 

200 to 299 Sophomore level 

300 to 399 Junior level 

400 to 499 Senior level 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Students are placed on academic probation when their 
work falls below accepted standards. 

At stated intervals students are expected to have 
achieved a certain over-all grade-point average on all work 
attempted. If a student fails to achieve this average he is 

(25) 



placed on academic probation for two quarters. The re- 
quirements as stipulated in the College Bulletin are as 
follows: 

At the completion of: Minimum required grade 

point average: 

45 quarter hours attempted 1.6 

90 quarter hours attempted 1.8 

135 quarter hours attempted 1.9 

190 quarter hours attempted 2.0 

A student who is placed on academic probation while 
he is enrolled as a full-time student (one who enrolls for 
12 or more quarter hours) must register for and success- 
fully complete 10 or more quarter hours of academic 
work, for at least the next two quarters in which he is 
enrolled, with a 2.0 grade-point average or better to be 
eligible to remain in school. 

A student who is placed on academic probation while 
enrolled as a part-time student (one who enrolls for less 
than 12 quarter hours) must register for and successfully 
complete at least 5 quarter hours of academic work for at 
least the next two successive quarters in which he is en- 
rolled, with a grade-point average of 2.0 or better to be 
eligible to remain in school. 

Failure to meet the above requirements for probation 
will result in the dismissal of the student for two quarters. 

A probationary student, if allowed to remain in school, 
shall remain on probation until his cumulative grade-point 
average reaches or exceeds the grade-point average indi- 
cated above as minimal for the appropriate year. 

A full-time student (one who enrolls for 12 or more 
quarter hours) who fails to pass at least one course other 
than physical education in any quarter will be dismissed 
from the college for two quarters. A part-time student 
(one who enrolls for less than 12 quarter hours) who fails 
to pass at least one course other than physical education 
in two successive quarters will be dismissed from the col- 
lege for two quarters. A grade of "I" (incomplete) will be 
considered an "F" until it is removed. 

(26) 



A student re-entering the college after academic dis- 
missal will be placed on academic probation for two suc- 
cessive quarters. 

A student dismissed for academic reasons may appeal 
his dismissal to the Committee on Academic Standing. Such 
appeals must be made in writing to the Committee (ad- 
dressed to the Secretary), should state the nature of all 
extenuating circumstances relating to his academic de- 
ficiency, and must be received by the Committee by the 
time of its announced meeting. 

A third dismissal for failure to meet the academic 
standards of the college shall in all cases be final. 

LIBRARY 

The Lane Library of Armstrong State College is a mod- 
ern two-story handsomely equipped building which is com- 
pletely air-conditioned. There is an attractively furnished 
periodical and newspaper room on the first floor. Individual 
carrel desks are available on both floors. Group study 
rooms (for use by assignment only) are located on the 
second floor. 

Hours: The library is open from 8 A.M. until 9 P.M. 
Monday through Thursday; Friday from 8 A.M. until 5 
P.M. and from 2 P.M. until 6 P.M. on Sunday. The library 
is closed on New Year's Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanks- 
giving and Friday and Saturday after, and on Christmas 
Day. Other variations or changes, including Intersessions 
will be posted in the foyer of the library. 

Resources. The library collection numbers approximately 
30,000 volumes, with additional pamphlets and govern- 
ment documents. The library receives over 300 periodicals 
and 8 newspapers. The collection also includes phonograph 
records and tapes which are available for circulation. 

In the library you will find materials for every sub- 
ject, every purpose, and every taste. All the books have 
been carefully chosen for the work and interests of the 
students and faculty. 

(27) 



Circulation Policies: 

1. The I.D. card which is issued at time of registration 
also serves as your Library card. It is necessary 
that you present this card each time you wish to 
check out any materials. No loans will be made 
without this card. 

2. Reference books and periodicals (whether bound or 
unbound) are for use only within the library. 

3. All books (except Reserve books) may be bororwed 
for two weeks. Unless another borrower is waiting 
for a book, it may be renewed twice. To renew a 
book, it must be brought to the charging desk from 
which you borrowed it. A maximum of five books 
may be charged to a person at any given time. 

4. Reserve books are so designated at the request of 
an instructor who wishes to assign them to his 
classes as supplementary or required reading and 
they are kept behind the charging desk. Reserve 
books are circulated for the length of time recom- 
mended by the instructor. 

Fines. For general books the overdue fine for late 
returns is two cents a day. The fine for reserve books is 
twenty-five cents a day. Overnight reserve books carry 
a fine of twenty -five cents for the first hour and ten cents 
for each additional hour overdue up to the maximum of one 
dollar per day for each book. The fine for recordings, tapes 
and pamphlets is five cents per day. Fines are levied as a 
means of encouraging the prompt return of books so that 
as many people as possible may benefit from them. 

Borrowers who lose books or other library material will 
be charged the price of the item plus 20% of the value to 
cover the cost of correcting the records and processing a 
replacement copy. If the book is found within the school 
year, a refund will be made of the price of the book, 
providing the person is still a student at the time. No 
refund will be made of the processing charge. If a student 

(28) 



should lose a book, he should report this fact immediately 
so that excessive fines do not accumulate. 

Students who owe fines to the library or who have 
overdue books will not be permitted to register for the 
next quarter or to have transcripts of records issued until 
their accounts have been cleared. Also, semester grades 
will be withheld if the library record of the student is 
not clear. 

CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINE 

1. Silence. Since the Library is intended for purposes 
of reading and serious study and research, quiet, must 
be observed at all times. 

2. No Smoking. Smoking is not permitted in any area 
of the Library except the foyer. 

3. Students who fail to maintain suitable standards of 
conduct, or who fail to observe any of the Library's 
rules and regulations, will be sent out of the Li- 
rary and will not be readmitted without special 
permission. 



HONOR SYSTEM 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College provides 
all members of the student body with an opportunity to 
participate in self government. The accompanying respon- 
sibilities are outlined below. 

The Honor System, written by a joint committee of 
faculty and students, received an overwhelming endorse- 
ment by both faculty and students during the Winter 
Quarter, 1965. 

The ordinances of the Honor System are as follows: 

I. All students must agree to abide by the rules and 
regulations of the Honor System. A student will not be 
accepted at Armstrong State College unless he signs the 
following statement at the time of his first registration: 

(29) 



"I have read the regulations governing: the Honor 
System at Armstrong State College, and I understand 
that as a student at Armstrong, I must comply with 
all of these requirements." 

This statement and all rules and regulations governing 
the Honor System will be printed in the official bulletin 
and the Student Handbook. The Statement will also be 
printed on the application form for admission to be signed 
by the student before admission to the college. 

It will be the responsibility of the Honor Council to 
conduct an extensive orientation program at the beginning 
of each quarter for all newly entering students to explain 
fully the requirements of the Honor System and to allow 
full discussion of these regulations. 

II. The following will be considered violations of the 
Honor Code: 

(1) Academic dishonesty of any kind (giving or re- 
ceiving any unauthorized help on any assignment, 
test or paper. At the beginning of each quarter it 
shall be the responsibility of each teacher to make 
clear what shall be considered unauthorized help 
in his course). 

(2) Stealing only when related to cheating. 

(3) Lying before the Honor Council. 

(4) Failure to report a known offense. 

(Lying or stealing in any other cases will be con- 
sidered disciplinary, not Honor, matters.) 

III. Ways of reporting a violation of the Honor Code: 

(1) Self -reporting: A student who has broken the 
Honor Code should report himself to a member of 
the Honor Council. 

(2) Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware 
of a violation of the Honor Code must report the 
matter. This may be done in one of two ways: 

(30) 



a) He may tell the person thought to be guilty to 
report himself to a member of the Honor Council 
no later than the end of the next school day. 
After this designated time the person who is 
aware of the violation must inform a member 
of the Honor Council so that the Honor Council 
may contact the accused person if he has not 
already reported himself. 

b) He may report the suspected violation directly 
to a member of the Honor Council without in- 
forming the accused. 

IV. The Honor Council will be composed of eleven 
students : 

(1) A president, who must be a memoer of the senior 
class, to be elected by the entire student body. 

(2) A vice-president, a senior, elected as above. 

(3) A secretary, who must be a junior, elected as above. 

(4) Two representatives each from the freshman, sopho- 
more, junior, and senior classes, elected by the 
members of their respective classes. 

The election of officers will be held in the spring 
quarter. The election of class representatives will be held 
in the fall quarter. During summer school, any member 
of the previous year's Honor Council who is attending 
summer classes will continue on the Honor Council for the 
summer. These along with the three officers elected in the 
previous spring quarter will appoint other students in 
summer school to fill the remaining vacancies. Any officer 
not present in the summer school will be temporarily re- 
placed by the appointment of the summer school Honor 
Council. 

Qualifications for membership — All officers and repre- 
sentatives (except freshmen) must have an overall average 
of "C" or better for all work at Armstrong. Freshmen 
representatives must have an overall average of "C" or 
better from high school work. 

(31) 



Any student not in good standing with the college in 
academic or disciplinary matters is ineligible to serve on 
the Honor Council. 

Any member of the Honor Council who falls below these 
requirements during his term of office will be replaced 
by his next runner-up from the previous election. 

The Honor Council will be responsible for its own 
bylaws. 

V. Until there are four classes at Armstrong:, the 
following students will compose the Honor Council: 

For 1964-65 and 1965-66 school years: 

The president and vice-president must be upper 

classmen, elected by the entire student body. 

The secretary must be a freshman, elected by the 

entire student body. 

There will be four representatives from each of the 

two classes elected by their respective classes. 

For 1966-67 school year: 

The president and vice-president must be juniors, 

elected by the entire student body. 

The secretary must be a sophomore, elected by the 

entire student body. 

There will be two junior, three sophomore, and three 

freshman representatives, elected by each respective 

class. 

VI. Honor Council procedure for examining a reported 
violation: 

(1) It is recommended that an Honor Council meeting" 
be called by the president to examine a reported 
violation as soon as possible after such a report, 

(2) At the meeting the Honor Council will hear the 
accusation, the testimony of any witnesses, and 
any defense the accused may wish to present. 

(32) 



(3) The accused will have the right to hear all witnesses 
and all evidence brought before the Honor Council. 

(4) The accused will be considered innocent until proved 
guilty. 

(5) Nine members of the Honor Council will constitute 
a quorum. 

(6) The secretary will keep minutes of all meetings and 
all official testimony will be tape recorded. 

(7) A vote of two-thirds majority of the members of 
the Honor Council present and voting will be neces- 
sary for the conviction of the accused. 

(8) The vote will be taken by secret ballot. 

VII. If the accused is found innocent by vote of the 
Honor Council, the case will be closed; and all records 
pertaining to this case will be destroyed; and no further 
action will be taken. 

If a person is found guilty, the Honor Council will 
recommend to the President of Armstrong State College: 

(1) Suspension from school for any number of quarters 
(the minimum suspension will be for the remainder 
of the quarter in which the violation occurs). 

(2) Expulsion from school. 

All decisions of the Honor Council will be made as 
recommendations to the President of Armstrong State Col- 
lege, who will decide on the action to be taken. After the 
President of the College has decided on his course of 
action, he will inform the accused person of this decision 
in writing, and the President will post an official notice on 
the bulletin boards announcing his action without mention- 
ing the name of the accused. 

VIII. Although the College feels that the above two 
recommendations are appropriate for academic dishonesty, 
it also recognizes that unique circumstances may arise. 

(33) 



For such cases a series of appeals is open to the convicted 
student. He may appeal either the conviction or the 
punishment or both in the following ways: 

(1) To the President of Armstrong State College in a 
letter. 

(2) The President's decision may be appealed to the 
Chancellor of the University System of Georgia 
in a letter. 

(3) The Chancellor's decision may be appealed to the 
Board of Regents of the University System of 
Georgia in a letter. 

IX. Each student will be required to write on every 
written assignment, test, or paper a pledge that he has 
neither given nor received any unauthorized help on this 
work. This may be done by writing the word "Pledged" 
followed by the student's signature. 

X. A revision of the Honor System will require a 
majority vote of the faculty and of the student body.

etin board and will be the dissemination point for all mat- 
ters of relevance to the college community. Students are 
expected to check this board at least once a day.

sarily cluttered, all information to be posted should be 
left in the Student Personnel Office. 

For posting personal announcements students may use 
other bulletin boards on campus. 

(35) 



FINANCIAL AID

Student Government (in consultation with the Dean of 
Student Affairs and the Comptroller) based on requests 
from various organizations. 

(36)

tendance is voluntary. Notices of convocations will be 
posted on the Official Bulletin Board during the week 
prior to the program.

sued a student identification card. This card must be vali- 
dated at each registration and must be carried by the 
student at all times. 

Students will be asked to present their I.D. cards at all 
college sponsored events. If the card cannot be presented, 
the student will not be admitted. Students must also have

ance may be purchased at Registration. For further in- 
formation, contact the Student Personnel Office. 

ACCIDENTS 

In case of accident, injury, or sickness involving stu- 
dents, the campus nurse and the Student Personnel Office 
should be notified immediately. An attempt should be made 
to prevent crowds from forming and to make the injured 
person as comfortable as possible until a college official 
arrives on the scene. 

LYCEUM SERIES 

During the school year a number of lectures and con- 
certs by outstanding authorities and artists are provided by 
the college. These programs are designed to assist in the 
development of the college community. 

REFUNDS OF FEES

plication for withdrawal from school obtained in the Student 
Personnel Office. No refund will be made to students who

MISS GEECHEE REVIEW, 1966 

(L-R) Mayette Dalzell, Martha Haynes; Miss Geechee, 

Amanda McLaughlin; Mary Brooks Morgan, Joan 

Minkovitz 



ETIQUETTE 



Certain easy and obvious procedures that denote a 
person of poise and culture often slip an active mind. The 
following may refresh your memory: 

A. Meeting People — 

1. The older or more distinguished person is named 
first, and the woman is named before the man. 

2. Formal situations call for "May I present ?" 

or "May I introduce ?", et cetera. 

(40) 



3. Informal situations call for "This is ," "Have 

you met ?". or "Do you know ?", 

et cetera. 

4. Respond to all introductions in a simple and 
genuine manner. When attending a dance or other 
social function, make it a point to speak with the 
chaperones. 

B. Smoking Etiquette — 

Smoking should be done only in areas set aside for 
that purpose — never on the dance floor. You should 
never smoke unless invited to do so in a professor's 
office or any other office. Remember, city and state 
fire laws prohibit smoking in public auditoriums and 
theaters. Obey NO SMOKING signs in classrooms and 
other campus areas. Never smoke at a dining table 
while others are eating and never use food dishes for 
ash trays. An ASC coed never smokes on the street 
or while crossing the campus. 

C. Concerts and Lectures — 

1. Always show consideration for the artist and 
audience by arriving sufficiently early to be seated 
before the program begins and by leaving only at 
intermission or at the close of the program. Under 
no conditions should you enter the auditorium until 
the performer completes a number. It is incon- 
siderate to talk or rattle programs during a per- 
formance. It is proper for the audience to rise 
when a prominent person comes before or is pre- 
sented to the audience. 

2. At concerts, applause is held even after a solo until 
the conductor, by turning on the podium toward the 
audience, indicates that the selection is over. The 
conductor's appearance from the wings is applauded, 
the house becomes quiet when he turns toward 
the orchestra. 

D. Social Correspondence — 

1. When you receive a personal invitation to an oc- 
casion such as a breakfast, luncheon, dinner, a small 

(41) 



tea, or a wedding, followed by a reception, you 
should always reply. However, a reply is not re- 
quired when the invitation is for a large tea or 
reception unless the invitation carries an R.S.V.P. 

If invited to a small informal social activity, you 
may respond by telephone. For formal parties, you 
respond in longhand, repeating the form of the in- 
vitation, writing in blue or black ink on plain white 
paper. All formal invitations and responses are 
written in the third person. 

"Thank you" notes are proper for any situation 
where you might express your appreciation. These 
may be "bread and butter" notes to a hostess in 
whose home you have stayed. Thank you notes 
should be written for gifts, favors, and also to those 
persons who have chaperoned your parties. 



E. Miscellaneous — 



A man precedes a woman off buses and out of cars. 
If there is no usher, he precedes her down the aisle 
of a theater, church, or auditorium. In a restaurant, 
if there is no waiter, the man leads the way to the 
table. Remember, when dining out with a gentle- 
man, he relays the woman's order to the waiter. 
Before ordering, consideration should be shown for 
your date's suggestion for the meal. This considera- 
tion on your part will be greatly appreciated. 



(42) 



III. STUDENT REGULATIONS 



SMOKING AND EATING 

Smoking and eating are prohibited in all classrooms of 
Armstrong State College. Students may smoke in the 
halls and outside the buildings and in all parts of the 
Student Center. 



STUDENT CONDUCT 

The conduct of students on campus, at college spon- 
sored afairs or when representing the college in any 
capacity, must meet accepted standards of adult behavior 
in compliance with the regulations of Armstrong State 
College and the Regents of the University System of 
Georgia. 

Gambling, hazing, the possession of intoxicating bever- 
ages, immoral conduct, and dishonesty will render the stu- 
dent liable to disciplinary action. Students are expected at 
all times to show respect for properly constituted 
authority. 



DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURE 

Administering college regulations regarding discipline 
is the responsibility of the Dean of Student Affairs. A 
Faculty Discipline Committee is available to assist, when 
necessary, in the administration of these policies and to 
hear appeals from students against whom disciplinary 
action has been taken. 

Students accused of violations of the disciplinary regu- 
lations and /or witnesses to these violations may be called 
before the Dean of Student Affairs and /or the Faculty 
Discipline Committee. 

(43) 



The following penalties may be imposed for violation of 
these regulations: 

1. Probation — The withholding of privileges for a 
specified period of time. Further violations during 
the probationary period may result in suspension of 
the student. 

2. Suspension — The exclusion of the student from the 
College for a specified period of time after which 
readmission is possible. 

3. Expulsion — The permanent separation of the stu- 
dent from the college with no chance for read- 
mission. 

Students who have been suspended for disciplinary rea- 
sons may be automatically reinstated at the end of the 
specified period of suspension. The readmission of any stu- 
dent who has been suspended for disciplinary reasons must 
be approved by the Dean of Student Affairs. 

SCHOLASTIC DISHONESTY 

Since scholastic pursuits are fundamental to college 
life, dishonesty in this area is a most serious matter. 

All cases involving scholastic dishonesty will be handled 
by the Student Honor Court. For further information re- 
garding violations and the related disciplinary procedure, 
see Section I of this handbook. 

PARKING REGULATIONS 

Parking decals are required on all automobiles driven 
on campus by Armstrong State College students. Decals 
will be distributed during registration and in the Student 
Personnel Office during the quarter. Automobiles without 
decals or automobiles parked illegally will be given traffic 
tickets. 

DRESS 

The following is considered the minimum acceptable 
dress for Armstrong State College students: 
Women: Skirts (or culottes) and blouses. 
Men: Bermuda snorts or trousers and shirts. 

(44) 



IV. STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 
AND ACTIVITIES 

POLICIES GOVERNING STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 

Armstrong State College 

Student organizations at Armstrong State College exist 
as an integral part of the total educational program. They 
have as their purpose to contribute to the social welfare 
of the students as well as to benefit the entire community. 
Student organizations are organized and managed by 
students and are subject to the regulations of the college. 
As an integral part of the college community, they have 
certain responsibilities: effective achievement of the or- 
ganization^ announced purposes, appropriate social and 
community relations, and sound business management. The 
recognition of student organizations at Armstrong State 
College results in a relationship in which the college ac- 
cepts the responsibility for providing certain facilities, re- 
sources, and services while the student organization accepts 
the responsibility for its own conduct. Accepted standards 
of good taste shall be observed in the social conduct of such 
groups. Basic democratic operational procedures are ex- 
pected of all student organizations. 

The Director of Student Activities serves as over-all 
coordinator of student activities at Armstrong State Col- 
lege and is available to assist student organizations. 

Student organizations are required to have an advisor 
before they can function as recognized organizations of 
the college. The advisor must be an Armstrong State Col- 
lege faculty member or an approved representative of the 
colleg;e. He should be selected by the organization, and his 
function will be to inform the student membership of the 
regulations of the college concerning student organizations. 

The Director of Student Activities and faculty advisers 
are available to advise and assist organizations, but the 
final responsibility for performance rests with the mem- 
bers themselves. Failure to abide by Armstrong State Col- 

(45) 



lege policies may result in suspension or termination of 
the privileges to operate. All student groups shall furnish 
the Director of Student Activities with information re- 
garding purposes, organization structure, membership, of- 
ficers, activities, finances, etc., whenever requested. 

I. Student Government 

The Student Government of Armstrong State College, 
comprised of student body officers, the Student Senate, 
and Honor Council representatives, shall serve to express 
the will of the general student body. The college relies 
heavily upon this group in seeking the participation of the 
student body on matters that concern student welfare. 

The Honor Council is an integral part of the Student 
Government of Armstrong State College. It has jurisdic- 
tion in all cases involving alleged infractions of the Honor 
Code. 

II. Standards 

Student organizations are responsible for complying 
with the following regulations: 

A. No student organization will be permitted to affiliate 
with any outside group or organization without the 
approval of the President of Armstrong State Col- 
lege. 

B. All student organizations will be under the year- 
round supervision of the college whether the college 
is in session or not. 

C. Meetings of all recognized organizations will be 
cleared through the Director of Student Activities. 

D. Social activities will be limited to Armstrong State 
College students and their dates. 

For infraction of the above standards the Student Sen- 
ate may, with the approval of the Director of Student Ac- 
tivities : 

(46) 



1. Deny recognition of the group as an organization, 
possibly demanding a forfeiture of charter. 

2. Deny use of college facilities. 

3. Deny representation in Student Handbook and other 
publications. 

4. Deny social activities for a specified period. 

III. Social Regulations 

A social function is defined as a dance, party, activity,

tracts cannot be signed unless the money in the account of 
the organization is sufficient to cover the contract.

the possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages at any 
college-related activity. 

I. Financial Responsibilities 

1. The responsibility for organizational funds not de- 
rived from student activity fees will rest with the individ-

terly financial report to the Office of Student Affairs and 
have their financial accounts audited annually by the office 
of the Comptroller.
